Cups Web Interface not available

Hello, in Order to print with my Samsung Printer a had to reinstall Cups on my Redhat 9 (Clarkconnect) System.
There were no errors during reinstall.

Now I have the problem that the web interface ( ) is not available.
So I am not able to add a printer or configure it or print a testpage.

What may be wrong?

Where is the configuration file of the Cups web interface?

Try setting disable = no in /etc/xinetd.d/cups-lpd.

You could also try to configure your printer through the redhat-config-printer utility. This is the way RedHat wants you to do it.

THX, i searched through Google and found this:


Allow from 192.168.1.*

in my /etc/cupsd.conf

It worked.

To use my Samsung ML1710:
i have to make RAW Printing possible:

mime.types and mime.convs in /etc/cups. In each file, uncommented the line
by making it

What for consequences does this change have?
Slower printing?
