Slackware 10.1 IPP Printing


I have two computers, one Slackware and one Windows. The printer is located on the Windows machine, but I can't seem to configure it properly.

I heard IPP was easier and also faster for printing than SAMBA. How can I set this up through CUPS? Is there anything I have to do on my Windows machine to make this work?

I tried setting IPP up through CUPS, but I think I'm missing something because it's not working.

All topics I found here in the Slackware forum covered SAMBA so hopefully I didn't repeat someone's post.

I'm trying to get my printer to work because I'm using my Slackware partition for school work because I like to program on Linux and not Windows.

You don't need Samba because you are printing from Linux TO Windows.
Make sure that cups is running and go to http://127.0.0.1:631 to access its control page.
You need to set up CUPS to use a URI something like like:
ipp://windowsbox:631/printers/hp4100 if you have an entry in hosts
or ipp://192.168.0.2:631/printers/.... also works
in kde printing manager change the print system to cups and you may need to add the printer
In applications like firefox you have to change the printer properties from lpr..... to lpr-cups....... to print to the correct spooler.

Sorry for the belated reply, I got really busy with university.

Alright, I went into the CUPS CP and tried the following lines for the URL.

ipp://192.168.1.100:631/printers/
ipp://192.168.1.100:631/printers/Printer2 . . . (Printer2 is the shared name of the printer)
ipp://192.168.1.100:631/
ipp://192.168.1.100:631/Printer2

Wait a minute . . . When you say ipp://192.168.0.2:631/printers/ are you refering printers as the workgroup?

Oh man, I'm pretty sure that's what you meant now. Jeez, I knew I was out of it these last couple of days, but I didn't think I was this out of it.

I'm in the middle of my homework break so as soon as I'm done my homework I'll boot up into Slackware and try it out with printers as my actually workgroup.

Thanks for the information, I'll reply back after I'm done testing.

Alright, sorry for the late reply, but got kind of busy.

I figured out how to setup the printer through Samba and it works, except it's really slow. I can't figure out IPP at all.

Is there a guide anywhere I can follow that will help me set up any settings I could be missing somewhere?

Printers is not my workgoup.

You may need to modify /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
Make sure that Port 631 is uncommented
Browse address is set to your network broadcast eg 192.168.0.255
In Location:
Allow from your network eg 192.68.0.0/24

This is what the cupsd.conf is looking like:

Port 631
. . .
BrowseAddress 192.168.1.255
. . .
<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From 127.0.0.1, 192.168.1.100
</Location>

Using those and the address ipp://192.168.1.100:631/printers/ it will not work.

Did I set those parameters right?
