cups printer


Hi,

I have centos 6.4 and i have created cups server and shared the printer on it. how to attach this printer to other linux systems which is shared on my system?
so that i will get every print job info which will be shooted through any machine in the network and i will be able to manage printer centrally.

Configure your cups server to broadcast it's attached printers and configure the firewall if running to accept port 631 traffic. When you add a printer on the other linux systems the local cups servers will browse the network and see yours.

Thanks for replying, Yes it is already shared on cups server where printer is connected through network. Firewall is not running on that server also. I installed the printer on other linux clients using system > administration > printing > new printer. But i can't see it automatically there though it is already shared but i could see it in centos 5.x. Now i am using centos 6.x
