Description Gilboa Davara 2006-12-28 06:31:19 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):

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2007-01-04 11:56:18 EST
system-config-printer uses the CUPS admin API.  Reported upstream; hopefully the
API can be extended for this sort of thing.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2007-02-08 09:14:13 EST
Not something that will be fixed upstream until 1.3, where there will be a
distinction between 'share locally' and 'share over the Internet'.
Comment 4 Gilboa Davara 2007-02-08 11:53:45 EST
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.
