Adding printer in cups


Hello,

I have an Oracle Enterprise Linux. I need to configurate printers but I don't know how cups works.

- How I can start or check the status for cups?
- How I can add new destinations?
- I cant get http://ip_server:631 url works....

Regards

Use http://localhost:631, or failing that, http://127.0.0.1:631

you can edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to change what ip 631 listens on so that you can manage it remotely. To see if cups is working
Code:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/cups status
or replace status with start or stop to start the service or stop the service.

well of course that will not work

YOU have to use the REAL!!!!! ip address of the server
or if you are sitting in front of the computer
use "localhost" or " 127.0.0.1"
