Mandriva 2008 Printing Problem


Hello everyone,

I recently installed Mandriva 2008.0 on my desktop which had Mandriva 2007 Spring edition.

After I installed Mandriva 2008, I can't print from my Win XP/Vista Machines to the printer that's connected to my Linux 2008 machine. I have HP LaserJet 1018. Although printing works fine from another machine that I have that runs another copy of Mandriva 2008.

From my network, I can access the shared folders and even I can see the network printer. Also, I can print on my local machine. As soon as I add it to my Windows Printer list, Windows shows: "Access Denied, Cannot Connect" error message. I have opened the CUPS port on the firewall (631). I have done everything the same as I did on 2007, but it doesn't work here. Can anybody tell me why?

Thank you

what do you mean by print on local machine?

did you set up printer as a network printer or not?

If you set it as a local.....it may not be available to the network.

Yes I realise that is what you did in the past....but maybe 2008 differs?

I do not have a network printer....but I am aware you can configure it thru cups with root powers.

Thanks for the reply.

I believe what I wrote was confusing. It was very late at night... Here is a more complete description:

I have HP LaserJet 1018 that is connected to my PC running Mandriva 2008. The printer driver works when I try to send printing jobs from the PC that is directly connected to it through USB. It also works when I try to send a job over network from my other Mandriva 2008 Laptop. But from Vista/XP, I can't. I don't get permission to send a printing job to the Linux 2008 from XP/Vista... But from Vista/XP I have no problem accessing the shared folders and stuff on the machine...

Thakns alot
