RFE: Add "disable/modify browse/broadcast" UI support under "Server settings"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
Currently, if you enable printer sharing under "Server settings", cupsd starts
broadcasting IPP messages over port 631 on all available subnets.
As there's no UI based mean to control/disable/etc these messages, the user is
forced to manually edit the Browse line in the /etc/cupsd/cupsd.conf file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Related to bug:
system-config-printer uses the CUPS admin API. Reported upstream; hopefully the
API can be extended for this sort of thing.
Not something that will be fixed upstream until 1.3, where there will be a
distinction between 'share locally' and 'share over the Internet'.
Any chance we'll see 1.3 in F7?
It is supposed (...) to be released in 03/07.
Perhaps as an update. Not at release time.
