CUPS auto-detects and shows remote queues, how to disable?


I'm not sure if this question is best put into this thread, but here goes...

I have CUPS running on my linux workstation. I have 3 printers (1 local, 2 network) set up. However, when I go to print, I have about 7 printers in my list. The extra 4 are remote print queues that have not been manually set up. In other words, they're residing on another computer (an OS-X machine, to be specific), and my CUPS is automatically detecting them and adding them to my printers list.

I don't want CUPS to do this. Is there a way to turn this feature off?

If you don't share the printers on the other system(s) they won't show up. If you share them, the implication is that you want other machines to have access, so CUPS does the "right thing". You could firewall off IPP protocol (port 631); that should stop it.

If the remote computer were under my jurisdiction, I could ask them to stop sharing it, but that isn't the case. I'm looking for a way to stop MY cups from looking for other cups servers. The remote machine is an OS-X box.

I have read the cupsd.conf file, and I didn't see anything that would stop CUPS from adding other auto-detected printers.

Well, that fixed it.

I saw the browsing subnet options, but failed to see the on/off option.

Thanks for the info.
