Can't print to shared printer after suspend to ram


I have a machine with CUPS 1.3.10-2 installed that acts as a print server. It seems that a recent upgrade on the server (of CUPS?) has created a situation where I can print to the shared printer from the client machine just after rebooting the client. But if I suspend the client to RAM (/usr/sbin/s2ram) then printing doesn't work at all after I wake it up.

I upgraded the client to the same CUPS version. When I print after suspending I get the following in /var/log/cups/error_log:

Code:
E [27/Jun/2009:21:46:35 -0400] [Job 145] recoverable: Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...
This is repeated a lot and the jobs remain in the queue as shown by "lpq" when run on the client. The cupsd.conf on the client is the default on installed by debian, which I list below.

I restarted cups after switching LogLevel to "debug" and got the following messages about failure to connect to printers:

Code:

These "process_browse_data: <printer> not found" messages continue to repeat. I tried printing with debug on and saw this on the client (and no messages on the server):

Code:
D [27/Jun/2009:22:12:06 -0400] [Job 148] Connection error: No such file or directory
E [27/Jun/2009:22:12:06 -0400] [Job 148] recoverable: Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...
Can anybody tell me what could be going on or how I might fix this?


This is the cupsd.conf from the client:

By the sounds of it, the hardware isn't coming fully out of suspend. I'm wondering whether you could try kicking UDEV and then CUPS and see if that helps. Just restart the services.

let us know.

Tried restarting udev and cups. This had no effect.

On the client isn't it the case that the only hardware interface I'm using is the network connection? (And the internet connection works just fine after suspend. I haven't found anything else that is broken after suspend.) I'm not suspending the server, just the client.

I restarted some stuff in /etc/init and discovered that restarting avahi-daemon restores my print service.

Any idea why this would be?

Is there a way to automatically restart this daemon after coming out of suspend?
