Hi Sid,

I ran the 'tail command on tee client after stopping the server 'tail'. Saw nothing and refreshed a few times.

lpq on the client with "tcpdump -i eth0" running, /etc/cups/client.conf has the line "ServerName barrabas.site".
Sorry, that's my hostname, substitute yours.


Spy:~ # lpq
lpq: Unable to contact server!

The server should be the one doing the broadcasts. On the client "ps fax|grep cups" shows cupsd (server) isn't running which is correct, on the server ---
barrabas:/ftp/May05/MPlayer-1.0pre7 # ps fax|grep cups
22890 pts/3 S+ 0:00 | | \_ grep cups
9669 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/cupsd

All I get is the '22890...' line, no '9669.....' line.
All you got above means the server is not running. You could try running "cupsd" from the command line, check with ps that it's running and if not, there should be something in /var/log/cups/error_log. Until the server is up and running, there will be no ipp network broadcasts.

I shall send you separately my /etc/cupsd.conf on the server and /etc/cups/client.conf from the client.

Thanks, all received, browsed and changes implemented. The files were the same as what Graham sent me ealier. I did not let my ServerName be barrabus as it probably could have caused other problems so I just made sure it was the IP.

Still LiNUX CAN'T PRINT SHIT ie its a no go.


Also " lppasswd -a root" or you will get access errors from "http://localhost:631";.
YaST should also have setup stuff in /etc/cups/, printers.conf and printcap.
Regards
Sid.
