OpenSUSE Network :: CUPS Does Not Recognize Ubuntu Cups Server On Intranet?
Feb 24, 2010
I have a printer configured on my Ubuntu server using CUPS amd made it available to the local network. The printer is recognized on my other Ubuntu machine without any problems.
But on my Suse laptop, the printer is not recognized. Using the YaST printer Configuations, I choose the option "Recieve Printer Information from Remote CUPS servers. But no printer is found.But... when I choose Do All Yout Printing Directly via One Remote CUPS server and enter the correct IP address (192.168.1.100), the printer is found andI am sure the printer info is broadcasted because it shows up on my second Ubuntu PC. But why is it not recognized by default on my Suse machine
I'm trying to setup a cups printing server, but I want the default admin to not be root. Google has given me a couple hints and the cups administration page a little further but I'm now stuck at the end.What I want is a user called admin who belongs to the group printadmin as cups server administrator.What I have done1) I have created a local user called admin user yast user interface , and a group called printadmin. Added admin to the group printadmin2) I changed the line in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.SystemGroup sys roottoSystemGroup printadmin 3) Changed all instances of of Authtype from Basic to Digest (Allows me to have a file called passwd.md5 in /etc/cups/ with the name of the allowed cups admins inside)4) Ran the following command to create and add admin.Code:lppasswd -a -g printadmin dmin This is what I receive after running the commandlppasswd -a -g printadmin administratorEnter password:Enter password again:lppasswd: Die Kennwortdatei wird verwendet!
installed lenny and am trying to install brother dcp7010 again:
1) i can't start CUPS server with /etc/init.d/cups restart "file not found", there is a cups@ link in /etc/init.d.
2) when i install dcp7010 cupswrapper
dpkg -i cupswrapperDCP7010-2.0.1-2.i386.de it ends with " lpinfo: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt lpadmin: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt" (connection to server not possible, refused)
3)[URL] doesn't work.
4)foomatic-gui can't find the installed dcp7010 lpr-driver
brdcp7010lpr-2.0.1-1.i386.deb, (a couple of days ago it did)
This is frustrating because it worked in etch and worked for awhile in lenny. The dcp7010-scanner does work.
I'm in a bind and I don't know how to get what I want. Nmap shows ipp running cups on port 631. Great, simple enough I uninstall cups, along with its dependencies. A new portscan reveals that the port is closed SUCCESS, but... Ubuntu Update Manager nags me @ every restart about the "important security" updates. I can't lock the version of cups in Synaptic, because cups is not installed! So you see I'm in a bind. If I have cups installed I have an open port, and if I uninstall cups the update manager nags me. What do I do? I've tried:
- stopping the cups service and issuing the chkconfig cups off command... (doesn't close the port) - uninstalling cups... (update manager nags) - fuser -k 631/tcp (great, but @ reboot the port is still open) Please teach me how to close this port / stop this service / tell update manager to shove cups.....
I've been trying to figure this out for longer than I care to admit. We upgraded our print server (sysadmin) to 64 bit lucid and that moved our cups server from 1.3.7 to 1.4.3. We have a remote server that is still 1.3.7 (printhost1) but version difference doesn't seem to be relevant to the problem.
If I'm on console on sysadmin and do an lpr to a printer on printhost1, everything is copacetic. However, If I'm on a host that specifies "ServerName sysadmin" in its "/etc/cups/client.conf" access_log on sysadmin shows:
Additional symptoms are that only printers locally defined on sysadmin show up when the client uses System>Administration>Printing in gnome. Same thing when you browse printers in windows on our samba domain controller that backends on CUPS.
I just know that it's something simple that's going to make me facepalm but I'm at a loss.
1. Under openSUSE 11.2, I allowed printer sharing through CUPS by setting the Firewall to Allow Services of CUPS in the External Zone section. I don't see the CUPS option in the Allow Services of the Firewall under 11.4, any zone. Is my system missing something?2. If I turn off the Firewall, the client computer can see the printers, even get the broadcasted names. If I put port 631 in TCP of the Advanced setting of the External Zone, the client computer can see the printer too, but I know I read somewhere that putting 631 in the External Zone is basically allowing printer requests from the entire internet.
I've been at this mess pardon my french for a few hours and i'm still going nowhere, original thread posted over at archlinux forums:Since my printer isn't visible on my server (works just fine on my client) I tried to manually add various URI (tried em all) and I went from "printer location not found, waiting for jobs, to printer isnt running".
In my opinion it should be working but it's not, i've read the linux printer database/various linux forums/#cups on freenode (idled for 2 days no response)/gentoo wiki/forums and the old tool "google" but most of the "hacks" I tried didn't work.There's a lot of google links with issues similars to my own and alas they are all unresolved, is this a typical problem with unix/CUPS over servers/network?Why is it so difficult for CUPS to detect my printer over my server?
I have an ubuntu server (9.04) that needs to share a printer (a Brother 2070N on USB). To configure cups, I had to modify cups.conf quite a bit to let me access the printer management pages, but I did get it working. I can print using the lpr command, as well as print test pages using the management interface's "Print Test Page" button from any computer on my network. However, I cannot actually set up Ubuntu, Fedora, Vista, or OSX to see the network printer, and it's driving me insane.Brother from any computer on the network I can see the specific printer management page, but no computer can actually print to the printer (other than using the "print test page" button)
Is it possible to use CUPs to share an already networked printer using IPP? The printer itself uses IPP.I know at first look this may seem like a silly thing to do, however I have a special case to set up a "print proxy server" due to security compliance reasons
I just recently bought a WinStar USB LPR Network Print Server so that I could connect my printer to my network so all the machines on my network could print, and everything would be OS independent. The problem I'm having is that I can't get CUPS to connect to the printer. It either never prints anything, saying that the printer is not connected, or saying that LPR is spooling the job, but it never completes. I've been configuring it as a network printer in CUPS, and trying all the different configuration options to no avail. The print server is located on http://192.168.1.103 and is pingable. The print server I have is this one:
WinStars Networking USB LPR Print Server
What is the correct way to set up a print server like this so I can print to it?
I have a CUPS server with several end users. The problem is that the printer stops printing if someone trys to print in letter size. (You have to insert letter paper or abort the print job on the printer.)
No, I'm looking for a way to force printing jobs to A4 paper size.
how to do this? Maybe with custom cups filters, but I don't know how this is done.
Ok have setup my printer under suse 11.3 just fine and printing perfectly, and have added the printer to a windows 7 client, but had to get the disk to install the windows driver. Is there any way that i can put the windows driver on the linux machine so that when i go to a windows client and want to add the printer, i can just connect to the printer and the windows driver will be installed over the network like it does with windows servers?
I have a HP P1005, which is connected to my desktop computer. I have it configured using hp-setup and set it to share across the network. However no matter what I do on an other computer connected to the network I'm unable to detect the printer. With OS 11.2 it all worked smoothly and practically out of the box. Only need was to add CUPS as an allowed service. This option is taken out, apparently it posed a security risk beats me if you only allowed local traffic. In order to open up the port I added in the internal and external zone the following: code...
Still the printer is not detected. If I turn the firewall off on both machines, no printer. If I try to ping it from the host machine it asks whether or not I enabled the firewall (which is turned off!!).
cupsd is running on the server printer. Localhost:631 is correctly configured and printing from my desktop works fine.
I have been using Opensuse since 11.0, and I never had any problems with the setup of CUPS printing (university based). Now for the first time, after many months of flawless printing using 11.2, after installing 11.3 the printing has stopped working. I use the same method: Print via print server machine -> CUPS server (IPP) and I test the connection. In my 11.2 it shows "OK", in 11.3 (I also tried with firewall off) I am getting the following (I have substituted the actual values with xxx for privacy).
I want to setup my Epson Stylus (515W)-A letter before the 5 but not sure what. Basically when I open CUPS I click on add on new printer, I enter add printer but then the page says access denied. Also this is a network printer.
I am demo'ing Kubuntu 9.04 workstation to a customer. He has a CentOS 5.3 server (my doing). On it is our CUPS Network file server. Everyone (65 of them) print to our network printer through it using LPR/LPD (and sometimes Samba).
Problem: when Kubuntu's Print Configuration Tool went looking for printers, it found every network printer's IP address, but missed my CUPS printer server. What did I do wrong on one or both ends (I have control over both).
I have a 11.3 machine as a print server sharing out a printer Then I have two clients using that printer. One 11.3 and one 11.4 6 of 6. When I print from LibreOffice on either machines every other print job disappears. I'm a bit puzzled ! It's not random it's exactly every other that doesn't show up at the server. It's not in the server job log.
I am on Ubuntu 10.04. I had a network printer added, but suddenly now the printer seems to have disappeared. What's more, System->Administration->Printing doesn't allow me to add a new printer.The System->Admin.->Printing troubleshoot said the following:
"The CUPS print spooler does not appear to be running. To correct this, choose System->Administration->Services from the main menu and look for 'cups'". System->Admin.->Services does not exist. Searching on the net led me to believe that /etc/init.d/cups start would start cups for me, but that does not seem to be happening.
I am unable to figure out how to set up a net work printer with new squeeze installation. I have used cups ver 1.3.8 on lenny and have never had any difficulty, this new version 1.4.4 I'm unable to gain any ground with.I did a purge and re-install with no luck?
I have a CUPS server on Debian, I am trying to connect from an Ubuntu 8.04 box. Here is my CUPS configuration file on Debian just in case it is usefull:
LogLevel warning SystemGroup lpadmin # Allow remote access Port 631
When I try to add a printer I have set up in CUPS from my Ubuntu box, it asks for the password for katie (this is the user that is logged in on ubuntu box) on 192.168.1.200 (CUPS Debian Box). The problem is, I don't have a katie user set up on the debian box, am I supposed to for this to work. Why is it even prompting for a password? Also, it won't let me change the name so that I can authenticate with a different user, it is not in a text box.
I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 64, and when I change the CUPS-server via system->administration->printing->server->connect, the new list of network printers loads up correctly.But when I close the window and reopen it, the old CUPS-server is back, so it seems that the change isn't saved anywhere. Rebooting doesn't do anything.
I'm not looking to setup a print server. I want to print documents TO an existing network printer while I'm logged in via ssh to my Ubuntu Server 10.4 command line shell. Things like admin emails, pdf docs, etc.
All the clients on my LAN are able to print directly to the network printer without any help from the Ubuntu Server. I don't want to setup CUPS on the server unless that's the only way to print from the server itself to a networked printer.
Do I need CUPS or can I print from the command line in some other way?
I'm having a devil of a time trying to set up printing with 3 network printers: an HP Laserjet P4014n, an HP Laserjet 5200tn, and an HP Officejet Pro 8500 a909a. The three printers are connected directly to the office intranet and have their own ip addresses. The system I'm trying to configure is running Wheezy, and HPLIP and Cups are both installed. I have confirmed (from [URL] ....) that all printers are supported.
First, running "hp-setup -i" (hplip-gui is not installed -- I do not wish to pull in half of KDE simply to configure printing), the program only finds the 2 laserjets. Adding one of them creates a printer in CUPS with an "hp:/net/<printer name>" connection. Attempting to printing a test page through CUPS fails with message "/usr/lib/cups/backend/hp failed".
Interestingly enough, running "hp-probe -bnet" finds all three printers. However, running "hp-makeuri" with each printer's ip address fails with "error: Device not found". Hmmm, so HPLIP can apparently go from seeing everything to seeing nothing. Very useful.
Moving to the CUPs browser interface, clicking "Find New Printers" under the "Administration" tab also only shows the 2 laserjets, although each is listed three times(!). The only difference that I can see among the three versions of each printer is in the connection uri:
Adding any one of them seems to work, although I do not understand why there are three of them (presumably different protocols, though what they are and the differences between them are, I don't know).
Logging into the officejet control panel and browsing at its network configuration, I see mDNS, SNMP, and WINS are disabled, although SLP is enabled. Looking in '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf', I see 'BrowseLocalProtocols' is set to only CUPS and DNSSD, so I add SLP and restart CUPS. No change; the officejet still doesn't show. I go back into the officejet control panel and enable mDNS (which, if I understand correctly, is essentially the same as DNSSD). Nothing; the officejet still doesn't show.
I've been trying to get CUPS working on a headless server, in order to share the printers connected to it with the rest of the network. The problem is that I can't add printers via the web interface, or rather, that I can log in, as it will not authorize my account. I've tried lppasswd, adding cupsys to the group 'shadow'(only to have the system tell me that there is no user called cupsys), and been editing the cupd.conf for hours. On top of all tha, I can't even get to the web-interface without running "/etc/init.d/cups restart"!
