Debian Network Print


Hi,

I am new to Debian, but not to Linux. Printing on a network with Mandrake es really easy, but I want to use Debian. I think Debian is a lot faster and more intresting opereting system than Mandrake.

I use cups web interfase to configure the printing[1] and it works find locally. The problem is when I want to print over the network. All my computers are using Debian sarge. What utility can I use to share de printers? Can it be done with cups web interfase? Do I need to have the cups server in both the server and the client computers?

Hope to hear soon from you. I want I am starting a cyber cafe and I want it to be only with Linux .

Greetings,

Rafael

I have an HP printer on the network. I configured it using the cups web interface. I chose "App/Socket Jetdirect" and the device uri is: socket://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9100 where the x's are the IP address of the printer. You can also configure it in KDE from the KDE control center. Select Peripherals>Printer and click "administrator mode". You can then add a printer.

You should also open up synaptic and look at the cupsys package to see recommended packages and see if you need to install anything else. I do not know all the related packages I installed, but there were several things needed to get all the printer drivers and other stuff.

Cups should work fine for sharing the printer. Go into your /etc/cups/cups.conf file on your server machine and in the section Network Options make sure you have the line Port 631 uncommented. Then in the section Security Options use something like this.

Code:
<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From 127.0.0.1
Allow From 192.168.0.0/24
</Location>
Changing the line Allow From 192.168.0.0/24 to the proper subnet you are using. You would then use /etc/init.d/cupsys restart to restart the server and have the new configuration used.


Now when you use the http://localhost:631 interface on the client machine to setup the printer when you get to the Device use Internet Printing Protocol (ipp) and for Device URI use ipp://ip_address_of_print_server:631/printers/name_of_printer_on_print_server and it should be able to use it when you print from the client.
