Re: the "Webserver first" todo: Why is a webserver necessary? -- Dubiousjim 16:04, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Looks like this doesn't really apply to the current page, but I'd presume that a "webserver" for cups would refer to the admin page (http://localhost:631/admin).

As far as updating this to work, I can say the following:

  • I used
Listen 192.168.2.*
Allow 192.168.2.*

instead of

Listen *:631
Allow from
  • I had to run these commands manually after updating cupsd.conf and restarting cups:
cupsctl --share-printers
lpadmin -p Printer_Name -o printer-is-shared=true
  • It is then necessary to point the clients at your new print server, via lpadmin or /etc/cups/client.conf
