Thread: CUPS forwarding problems

    CUPS forwarding problems

    It seems that a lot of other people are having fun playing with CUPS so I thought I'd give it a try. It set it up along with Samba on my server and was able to print to it from my Win98 box.

    The trouble comes when I try to print from MY lfs box. I selected the printer location as ipp:// (My server ip and the printers name in CUPS) But when I try to print, CUPS queues the print job (According to the error_log) but in the interface it just tells me its 'processing'

    I have also noticed that if I try to use 'Configure Printer' from the interface, it blurts out 'client-error-not-found' on the page.

    I have only left the server as it was when I set it up for samba/cups so maybe I missed something?

    And another thing, I can't access from any other pc so maybe that might be why my lfs box can't access the printer?

    Re: CUPS forwarding problems

    After much mucking around I've come to the conclusion that my linux pc can not access the CUPS printer. All it says on the web interface is 'Connecting to hostname' (Where hostname is the hostname of the server) Do I need to do something to allow my linux pc to access it?

    Thanks gmoreno. I'll give it a try and hopefully it works!

    Now, I have to try to get my samba shares mounted or have them over nfs. This will be fun ;-)

    Re: CUPS forwarding problems

    It worked! Except, it doesn't print out what I want ;-)

    Here is what I get:

    %%BoundingBox: 0 0 595 842
    %%Creator: Qt 3.0.3
    ion Date: Sun M......

    Any idea why this is?

    You need Post Script drivers. Head over to Adobe site and download PS drivers for your printer.

    Thanks!! Printing now works brilliantly. To summarise my problem, I didn't have access to the server and I had selected the 'raw' driver on both the server and client. Changing the client driver to 'HP Deskjet' on the client solved the problem (I didn't think of that because the HP driver didn't support my printer on the server and wouldn't print.)

    hi gmoreno,
    could you please keep those posted. i can not connect to you server right now.

    You don't have permission to access /~gmoreno/cups/printers.conf on this server.

    Apache/1.3.24 Server at Port 80
    could ya do a chmod 644 ~gmoreno/cups/printers.conf please
