Unhappy Problem with CUPS


Hello,

I am trying to install a new configuration tool call brightq on Redhat 9 but unable to connect to the CUPS server. I get the error:
Unable to connect to CUPS server, Check options.
In options I have localhost as arever with port 631. I also tried to put the root name and password, I still get the same problem.

Please help!!!

I just put the loopback in the host file.
I tried to connect to the QTCUPS again and I'm still getting the same error.
Any more ideas?
