for kprinter under a terminal screen could get the KPrinter dialogs to
disappear. I also tried the printer manager from the printer icon on the
task bar with the same result. It actually took 2 reboots to rid myself
of the Kprinter dialogs.

So, now what needs tweaking? Especially since I get a 100msec ping reply
from the server when I ping on the client side.

I assume that because I am getting a reply back on the ping that the
machines are 'talking' to one another. Where should I check error
messages after I have tried to print?

For testing CUPS you should be using the commands that come with CUPS. Have a look at the manual that comes with cups before you end up messing up the config files again. http://localhost:631
I tried by opening up Mozilla MAil, making sure I was offline, opened a Navigator session, went online and entered te above text. Immediately a message appeared:

'Unable to browse the above as the connection was refused when trying to connect to http://localhost:631'

Below text snipped as answered in an earlier email.
