CUPS 1.3.7 remote installation


Computer A= Slackware 12(Access the internet and computer B)
Computer B= Slackware 12 (Internal local) connected to Hp printer.

Both computers have cups 1.3.7 installed and I have checked that it is possible to print from Computer B from localhost:631

I have read a lot about directives -and it seems to me like they have changed the syntax in version 1.3.7 , but I can not figure out how to install printer on Computer A and print from any program for example openoffice.

I have tried ubuntu with same result. Not able to print from computer A.

I have checked that A4 is choosen as paper too.
And also restarted cups on both machines.
Here is my /etc/cups/cupsd.conf on Machine B :

Wink Cups 1.3.7 solved

Thank You!
I have follow your advice
and also done other changes.
Now it works.

I don't know which settings, but what has been done is (and I want to be very specific to save all newbies some work.) My own thought is the change in /etc/hosts was the critical part!


Computer A IP: 192.168.0.1
root@tux# ./etc/rc.d/rc.cups start
root@tux# echo 192.168.0.3 pingvinen.example.org pingvinen >>/etc/hosts

Computer B IP :192.168.0.3

root@pingvinen# ./etc/rc.d/rc.hplip start
root@pingvinen# ./etc/rc.d/rc.cups start
root@pingvinen# vim 7etc/cups/cupsd.conf

Now it looks like this


Computer B

Computer A
http://localhost:631/printers/

HP_Photosmart_C3100_series_USB_1@pingvinen.example.org "Unable to locate printer 'pingvinen.example.org'!"


HP_Photosmart_C3100_series_USB_MY661B736304P9_HPLIP

Description: HP Photosmart C3100 series

ps.

(It seems you don 't need to care about this Unable to locate message, but what you must change is in modify printer from letter to A4 before successfully printing in this session.

HP_Photosmart_C3100_series_USB_MY661B736304P9_HPLIP

Description: HP Photosmart C3100 series
Location: Local Printer

And also do not forget to change the print settings in openoffice or what programs you use to print to A4 as well


ds.

Good Luck!!!
