Remote printing cups problem.


I have a laptop and a desktop machine with an Epson Stylus R300 attached. I configured both machines (fedora core 5) to use cups and the laptop uses the remote printer via IPP. I use gutenprint driver on both sides.

All worked well until recently (I don't know exactly when it stopped working cause I don't print that often but I would bet it is related to some kind of cups update....). Now I can still print from my desktop machine (local printer) but not anymore from the laptop. The strange thing is that all looks like it is working: the laptop processes the print job, sends it to the remote cups server. The remote cups server accepts the job and says its done. But nothing goes out to the printer.

Here is a piece of /var/log/cups/error_log on the laptop:
Code:
I [04/Sep/2006:13:12:43 +0200] Adding start banner page "none" to job 541.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:12:43 +0200] Adding end banner page "none" to job 541.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:12:43 +0200] Job 541 queued on "MainPrinter" by "myriam".
I [04/Sep/2006:13:12:43 +0200] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstops (PID 3511) for job 541.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:12:43 +0200] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster (PID 3512) for job 541.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:12:43 +0200] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertogutenprint.5.0 (PID 3513) for job 541.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:12:43 +0200] Started backend /usr/lib/cups/backend/ipp (PID 3514) for job 541.
N [04/Sep/2006:13:13:55 +0200] [Job 541] Print file accepted - job ID 210.
Now here is what I see in /var/log/cups/error_log on the desktop (server)
Code:
I [04/Sep/2006:13:13:55 +0200] Adding start banner page "none" to job 210.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:13:55 +0200] Adding end banner page "none" to job 210.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:13:55 +0200] Job 210 queued on "MainPrinter" by "myriam".
I [04/Sep/2006:13:13:55 +0200] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertogutenprint.5.0 (PID 19529) for job 210.
I [04/Sep/2006:13:13:55 +0200] Started backend /usr/lib/cups/backend/hal (PID 19530) for job 210.
I really don't know where to look for additional errors and I have no idea what the problem can be. Any suggestion trully appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Never mind... Problem has gone away with cups upgrade from 1.2.2-1.8 to 1.2.3-1.2...
