cups network printing


The cups server is stubbornly refusing to print from a remote machine on my home network. It prints fine from the main workstation, but not from the remote desktop. I've looked at cupsd.conf and tried to make the correct settings, but clearly I'm missing something.

The printer sets up fine on the remote system, it sends the print job to the queue, and then it just sits there. On the machine connected to the printer, cups shows no print jobs being processed after I sent a remote print job (I'm looking at localhost:631).

The network is two machines connected by a router. It can't be that tough (but I'm not that smart...).

Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Check in your /etc/cups/cupsd.conf on the server machine and in the section Security Options you should have something similar to this.

[code]
<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From 127.0.0.1
Allow from 192.168.0.0/24
</Location>

You would add the last "Allow from" line then use /etc/init.d/cupsys restart to restart the daemon with the new settings.

Then on your client machine when setting it up using http://localhost:631 under the Printers option add your printer then choose Internet Printing Protocol when you get to that option and use ipp://192.168.0.1:631/printers/printer_name_on_server_machine for the device and choose your driver from the list presented ( I usually find it best to get the CUPS driver directly from http://www.linuxprinting.org for the model of printer and follow the setup instructions for CUPS on the site to set this up first, sadly the Debian drivers never seem to work for me). You would of course change the IP's to reflect your setup. I have also had good results using the Kprinter Wizard in Administrator mode to add a printer so if you are using KDE you may want to give it a try as well and will probably want to use this to add your user to the list of valid users for the printer anyway.

cups...

Hi Stephen;

Thanks for your prompt and detailed reply.
This is a kicker of a problem -- I've spent most of the day on it. Here's where I'm at:

Using your instructions, I am now able to actually send print jobs across the network. It was the setting on the remote machine that you gave me that allowed this (though no matter what I put for ipp, the system could not find the printer; when I used http, it did).

Now I have a bunch of test pages sitting in the cue on the server connected to the printer. But they don't print. The printer page at 631 on the server shows the printer, and it says "waiting for job to complete." But when I press "Print Test Page", I get an error "client-error-not-possible". So maybe I'm going backwards. After all, earlier today I could at least print from the server...

The conf file is set to Allow All for browsing and access. Anyone can get in. Funny thing, though: when I set "Listen" to anything more than 631 (like the remote ip, for example), I get a cups error -- something like "could not bind to socket". But the jobs are getting through, so maybe that's not a big issue. I just left listen at 631.

I tried KDE first for all of this -- again, it worked from the server, but not across the network.

Ross

____________

Update: the printer on the server reconfigured itself. I did not change it from lpt to http, but it was changed. Hence the "not possible" error. It's now printing -- but I have to make my way though the long queue before I'm sure it's working fully. I can't remember which tests were from the server and which from the network.
If I have further troubles, I'll send another post.
Thanks again for your help.

Well, I'm stalled again. Here's what's happening:

On my network box, when I add a network printer in the KDE print manager, it scans and correctly finds the printer through the network. Everything goes OK except the test print (It doesn't complete). In the KDE print manager on the print server machine, it shows the installed printer (and correct uri to use remotely). It prints fine. But for every attempt I make to install the printer remotely, the printer-connected KDE print manager adds a new weirdly-named printer (something like "dssfc445.tmp") to the list of printers, and leaves the actual printer alone (i.e. with no pending test prints or other jobs).

I'm almost ready to try Samba -- but when I did, briefly, that didn't work either...

By doesn't complete do you mean the page starts to print and does not complete when you try it from the machine connected to if so it may be the driver you are using (what type/model of printer is it BTW). What version of KDE are you using and can you post the cupsd.conf on the server machine? Also what kind of router do you use do you have to enable port forwarding to allow the remote machine to access the service on the machine with the printer? This may be something to look at and where did you get the PPD file that you have installed on the remote machine from linuxprinting.org or Debian itself?

ongoing printer issue...

Hi Stephen;

When I try to print remotely, it doesn't even start. Printing works perfectly from the machine connected to the printer. Both machines are using the same driver (from the Debian Sid repository), and since this driver works from the print machine, I'm pretty sure it's not a driver problem (I could be wrong, and often am about this kind of thing).

The printer is an Epson Photo Stylus 750. I'm using kde 3.2.3. The router is a brand new smc unit that I've just purchased to replace a malfunctioning linksys router. I also replaced the operating system on the print server (from Xandros Debian to pure Debian Sid), and this printer worked fine before the OS upgrade (I also upgraded the remote system from Xandros to Sid -- though some Xandros stuff seems to be still hanging around).

I can view the network and use ssh across the network, so the router seems to be OK at passing information through. Also, when I scan the network in kde for printers, it correctly "sees" the printer in question from across the network. Of course, there may be other factors with the router that I'm not aware of.

I'm writing this on the client machine, and copied the cups conf. file in Konqueror using fish through the network as root, so that also seems to work OK. The print server is 192.168.2.100, and the remote system is 192.168.2.101. The router is 192.168.2.1.

My conf file follows below. With me, it's usually something simple. See anything?
Thanks.

I'm really a newbie, but I had a recipe for setting up cupsys printing from a remote client that worked for me. One thing I noticed in your cupsd.conf file different from mine is that I set the browseaddress to 192.168.0.255 (it said to set it to the broadcast address for your subnet).

HTH,

Good you can ssh in everything else should work then. That file must be leftover from Xandros is it because that does not look like anything I have every seen in Debian, I'm running a Sarge/SID mixed system on all my machines here except my firewall machine that runs Woody using an Epson Stylus Color 670. Try coping that file to a backup and use mine I have changed the subnet to match yours so it should be a drop in replacement restart the daemon and see if this works. You will have to change the protocol and device URI on the client back to ipp:// that's what the file is setup for. The http:// you had to use before I think was coming from the encrypted?? connection it is trying to use from the looks of the file you posted and you may want to use a copy of my file on the client as well without the extra line to allow the connections from the subnet.

######## Browsing Options
########

#
# Browsing: whether or not to broadcast and/or listen for CUPS printer

#Browsing On

#
# BrowseProtocols: which protocols to use for browsing.  Can be
# any of the following separated by whitespace and/or commas:
#
#     all  - Use all supported protocols.
#     cups - Use the CUPS browse protocol.
#     slp  - Use the SLPv2 protocol.
#
# The default is "cups".
#
# NOTE: If you choose to use SLPv2, it is *strongly* recommended that
#       you have at least one SLP Directory Agent (DA) on your
#       network.  Otherwise, browse updates can take several seconds,
#       during which the scheduler will not respond to client
#       requests.
#

#BrowseProtocols cups

#
# BrowseAddress: specifies a broadcast address to be used.  By
# default browsing information is not sent!
#
# Note: HP-UX does not properly handle broadcast unless you have a
# Class A, B, C, or D netmask (i.e. no CIDR support).
#
# Note: Using the "global" broadcast address (255.255.255.255) will
# activate a Linux demand-dial link with the default configuration.
# If you have a LAN as well as the dial-up link, use the LAN's
# broadcast address.
#
# The @LOCAL address broadcasts to all non point-to-point interfaces.
# For example, if you have a LAN and a dial-up link, @LOCAL would
# send printer updates to the LAN but not to the dial-up link.
# Similarly, the @IF(name) address sends to the named network
# interface, e.g. @IF(eth0) under Linux.  Interfaces are refreshed
# automatically (no more than once every 60 seconds), so they can
# be used on dynamically-configured interfaces, e.g. PPP, 802.11, etc.

# when possible (e.g. "printer" instead of "printer@host".)  Enabled by
# default.
#

#BrowseShortNames Yes

#
# BrowseAllow: specifies an address mask to allow for incoming browser
# packets. The default is to allow packets from all addresses.
#
# BrowseDeny: specifies an address mask to deny for incoming browser

# The hostname/domainname restrictions only work if you have turned hostname
# lookups on!
#

#BrowseAllow address
#BrowseDeny address

#
# BrowseInterval: the time between browsing updates in seconds.  Default
# is 30 seconds.
#
# Note that browsing information is sent whenever a printer's state changes
# as well, so this represents the maximum time between updates.
#
# Set this to 0 to disable outgoing broadcasts so your local printers are
# not advertised but you can still see printers on other hosts.
#

#BrowseInterval 30

#
# BrowseOrder: specifies the order of BrowseAllow/BrowseDeny comparisons.
#

#BrowseOrder allow,deny
#BrowseOrder deny,allow

#
# BrowsePoll: poll the named server(s) for printers
#

#BrowsePoll address:port

#
# BrowsePort: the port used for UDP broadcasts.  By default this is
# the IPP port; if you change this you need to do it on all servers.
# Only one BrowsePort is recognized.
#

#BrowsePort 631

#
# BrowseRelay: relay browser packets from one address/network to another.
#

#BrowseRelay source-address destination-address
#BrowseRelay @IF(src) @IF(dst)

#
# BrowseTimeout: the timeout for network printers - if we don't
# get an update within this time the printer will be removed
# from the printer list.  This number definitely should not be
# less the BrowseInterval value for obvious reasons.  Defaults
# to 300 seconds.
#

#BrowseTimeout 300

#
# ImplicitClasses: whether or not to use implicit classes.
#
# Printer classes can be specified explicitly in the classes.conf

#
# When ImplicitClasses is On, printers on the LAN with the same name

#     @LOCAL
#     @IF(name)
#
# The host and domain address require that you enable hostname lookups
# with "HostNameLookups On" above.
#
# The @LOCAL address allows or denies from all non point-to-point
# interfaces.  For example, if you have a LAN and a dial-up link,
# @LOCAL could allow connections from the LAN but not from the dial-up

Here's what I have installed for CUPS on my main machine which acts as the server.

Code:
[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# COLUMNS=125 dpkg -l | grep cups
ii  cupsys                    1.1.20final+cvs20040330-4 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - server
ii  libcupsimage2             1.1.20final+cvs20040330-4 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - image libs
rc  libcupsys2                1.1.20final+cvs20040330-3 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - libs
ii  libcupsys2-dev            1.1.20final+cvs20040330-4 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - development files
ii  libcupsys2-gnutls10       1.1.20final+cvs20040330-4 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - libs
You may also want to use netstat to check to make sure that the machine is actually listening for a connection on ipp ports.

Code:
[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# netstat -a --inet
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State

udp        0      0 *:ipp                   *:*

Edit the in the netstat section should be a p, damn smilie shortcuts.

Hi Stephen;

Thanks again for your help. Well, I think I'm making progress. I'm using your cupsd.conf file on both machines (though the old one on the server cannot be from Xandros, since I repartitioned the hard disk a few days ago and installed Sarge, then dist-upgraded to Sid. It must be the most current Sid version. The one on the client could have been from Xandros).

I'm still not network printing, though. When I run a test print now from the kde print manager, I get an actual error message -- this is an improvement, because before I got nothing. The error says that the printer is not accepting jobs. And indeed, the the /var/log/cups/error_log agrees. But on the server, the error_log explicitly says that the printer is accepting jobs. My netstat, however, does not show the printer as listening. Here are the the only listen entries:

tcp 0 0 *:time *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:discard *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:netbios-ssn *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:daytime *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:10000 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:ssh *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:ipp *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 localhost:smtp *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:7741 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:microsoft-ds *:* LISTEN

I tried changing the listen entries in the cupsd.conf file the other day (to 192.168.2.101, for example), but always got an error (status 1) upon cupsys restart when I did this. I'm willing to try this again, but I'm not sure what to put, or if this will resolve the "listen" issue.

Here's what I have for cups:

ii cupsomatic-ppd 20040506-1 linuxprinting.org printer support - transition package
ii cupsys 1.1.20final+rc1-1 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - server
ii cupsys-driver-gimpprint 4.2.7-1 Gimp-Print printer drivers for CUPS
ii cupsys-driver-gimpprint-d 4.2.7-1 Gimp-Print printer drivers for CUPS
ii libcupsimage2 1.1.20final+rc1-1 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - image libs
ii libcupsys2-gnutls10 1.1.20final+rc1-1 Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - libs

I appreciate you taking the time to help me with this. I'm sure you've got better things to do.
Ross

I got it working. And in case anyone else has this problem, what seemed to do it for me was to choose (on the remote machine) the driver that has CUPS in the name, *not* the driver that says "recommended" (foomatic, in my case). I probably should have thought of this earlier, but the recommended driver seemed the safest way to go.
