RFE: Better browsing configuration options
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
I want to be able to configure outgoing browsing only, e.g.:
BrowseAddress @LOCAL (needed to send)
Now, I would have exptected something like to the above to have been enabled
when I enable sharing for a individual printer, as how else am I going to share
it without sending browsing information?
Also, the current general browsing option is misleadingly named:
"Automatically find remote shared queues"
as this is currently needed to enable outgoing browse information as well, but
it sounds only like incoming.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I needed to set:
to get outgoing to work. Not sure why @LOCAL didn't work.
Oh, yes, the logic is slightly screwy there. It isn't meant to work that way.
The idea was that if any queue was shared, a 'BrowseAddress' line would be
written out. The 'Automatically find remote shared queues' option is overriding
that logic by mistake.
In Fedora Core 6 this will be done using a method very similar to the CUPS web
interface, and so this sort of problem should be fixed there.
