Do you have cups installed?


If there wasn't a CUPS server running, you wouldn't get a 404, you'd get
a connection denied or a connection request timeout.

Getting a 404 suggests there's something messed up with the CUPS
installation itself. Another possibility is that some non-CUPS server
is listening on that port. The 404 error is still an HTTP thing, so
whatever server _is_ responding there is either a Web server per se or
one that uses HTTP as its base protocol (as CUPS does).

What I needed to add to get this to work was admin.
The full address was http://localhost:631/admin
This worked where as the address without admin gave the 404 error.
