Hi Sid,

#ServerName in the client.conf I have:
"ServerName .." #sans quotes of course. :)

I'm thinking the '..' needs to be removed?

That's correct, they were just included to show what was needed, i.e just the stuff in the quotes.

On the server /etc/cups/cupsd.conf "Browsing On".

It is on on the server.

"rccups restart" on both boxes.

Any particular order like M$? ie server first.

I'll do the server first jic.

Server first.

"tail -f /var/log/messages" on both to see what requests and errors are being generated

I rebooted the server, didn't log in, rebooted the client, didn't log in.

Ran 'tail..' on server and repeated the 'tail' every 10 secs for approx 2 mins. Saw nothing to do with cups or communication. Did notice a message in /var/log/messages saying:

18:51 Umalusi kernel: alps.c : E7 REPORT 10 00 64
18:51 Umalusi kernel: alps.c : E6 REPORT 00 00 64

As I didn't see anything about CUPS. as well as not knowing what it means, I left it, unhappily I might add, as it mentions kernel.

Hmmmm.... my box was down, fresh install of 9.3 and it seemed to have DVD drive problems, halting while installing packages, but the box was still alive.
I enabled "BrowseAddress @IF(eth0)" without the quotes, "rccups restart" and it started broadcasting.
IP > UDP, length: 182

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".
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.

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.
