[CUPS]. Can print from windows. But cannot print from linux cups
 
Hello.
I have cups installed on my server. It can successfully print a test page.
My windows 7 clients can use the remote printer. But, i am having trouble with my linux clients that use cups.
i cannot even "find new printer" from client cups web interface.

Make sure the firewalls if running on your computers allow traffic on port 631.

The BrowseAddress directive specifies an address/interface to send browsing information versus the interface. To send browse packets to the entire network you can use the following:

BrowseAddress 192.168.0.255:631
BrowseAddress 172.16.0.255:631

If you want to restrict browsing to just a specific client then use its IP address. There could be other errors but this was the obvious one since the clients can not browse the server.
