Description of problem:
Not able to print from a remote printer
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to print from a remote computer
no print, I get a windows saying that there is an error in CUPSS server. An error occurred during CUPS operation: destination socket is not connected
standard workstation F21 installations, printer is a Samsung ML-1610, furthermore it should show up in the remote computer printer windows with no action from operator
Created attachment 986700 [details]
debug file from local printer
hope it can help. Printer is shared al least on the settings page
of course it must be read as no printing from remote computer
Bug 1087052 was very similar.
Furthermore I cannot delete old printers from available list in system-config-printer...I get CUPS forbidden!!!
If I connect the printer to any computer on the network it works fine...
I checked the Firewall settings and I found that in Fedora-Workstation zone ipp and ipp-client were unchecked.
I checked them and everything worked fine: I guess that change of settings should be requested when a printer is shared (and F20 had this feature, I remember). Am I correct???
I wonder if this is a firewalld-config-workstation (and firewalld-config-standard) bug instead of CUPS? If ipp-client isn't enabled, but should be, it seems that's the problem to fix it. I've inquired on desktop@ what the intended behavior is here. At the moment I think this must be unintentional behavior, people need to be able to discover and print to available network printers out of the box. firewall-config isn't installed by default on Fedora Workstation (or probably most spins) so the combination of ipp-client not enabled and no firewall-config is not good.
The problem is that, while system-config-printer is Python3, firewalld's client bindings are not.
