Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2006-07-17 06:11:58 EDT
I'd like to see exactly what gets sent over the network, so please run this command:

tcpdump -s 0 -U -w traffic.pcap host borg.mylan.net

in one terminal, and then run the 'lpr -H ...' command in another.  When the lpr
command has finished, press control-C in the tcpdump terminal.

Please attach here the traffic.pcap file you end up with.  Thanks!

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2006-07-17 13:06:14 EDT
Thanks!  This seems to be the same as an issue that has already been reported


I have added your (very useful!) TCP capture file to that report.  It seems to
be that the 'Expect' header has completely confused the older CUPS server and
rather than ignore it, it gives 'bad request'. :-(
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2006-07-18 10:51:13 EDT
Think I've found the fix.  Awaiting upstream maintainer's opinion on my analysis.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2006-07-24 07:41:53 EDT
Please try this test update, 1.2.2-1.1:


You should be able to fetch it using "yum update 'cups*'".

I hope it will solve the problem.
Comment 6 Anne 2006-07-25 16:42:11 EDT
Update installed onto FC6test1, and can confirm that I have just printed a
document across the LAN.  Problem appears to be solved, thanks.
