That is done. Do I actually need to set one in the cupsd.conf or does it
automatically grab one?
the cups server automathically grabs the box'es current hostname.
The clients got to be able to look whatever that is (look in
on the client to see) up back to the IP of the box
Try to run "host dns-to-server" on client. try to ping it as well (as
the resolver refuses to resolv anything else that fqdn-names.
Funny if the client is not able to look up the server, even funnyer if
the server claim's it has the name "localhost" :) Try it, print
something to it from the client. But have a terminal ready to do a
/etc/init.d/cups stop and then a rm -rf /var/spool/cups/*

Right now, silly, I know, there is no firewall within my network. There
is one on the route to the outside world. This will probably be
changing, but it isn't right now.
If you are behind NAT and firewall, you should not need it...

Hmm, you are correct. I wasn't seeing printers where I looked. Ooops,
So the question is, how can I tell if cupsd is allowing the browsing. I
am watching with Ethereal and I see nothing. In my apps I see nothing.
If cupsd is running, it should be advertising its printers (via udp:631
broadcast) pretty often.
Also, I noticed that in the printer definitions in cupsd.conf (defs
wrong, more like acl) I see that the order is deny,allow and the first
line is deny all even though a few lines later it says allow everyone.
Is this accurate?
Hmm... I *know* it is in Norwegian, but the config files are pretty
standard. Had to use some vendor-supplied drivers for a Lexmark
