CUPS & Localhost Confusion ( post #1)
I have been trying to install a new multifunction printer/scanner/copier for the past week!?!
Scans and Copies fine - but cannot print.
Someone with more know-how than me has pinned down the problem to the way my home network is rigged up, permissions and a CUPS problem.
Here's what happens:
1. I go to http://localhost:631/
>> Select Manage Printers
2. My HP PSC1205 printer is found and correctly configured to work with foomatic and hpijs
3. Device location is localhost >> But, when I try to Print Test Page, CUPS web interface attempts to contact http://main:631/printers/printer?op=print-test-page
4. At first, I got a Time Out message >> Now, I get re-routed to details of Adobe's new Photoshop Product!?!
Can anyone begin to shed light upon what is happening here and what I might do to try and remedy the situation?
I know the printer works fine on a different linux box running Fedora and not connected to my network ...
