Description Gerry Graesser 2007-01-03 21:55:14 UTC
Description of problem:

FC6 CUPS IPP not getting broadcast on local subnet.
When I reboot from FC6 back to FC5 another FC5 machine
immediately "finds" my three (3) local printers and
can use them remotely.  When I reboot back to FC6 the
the other FC5 machine can continue to remotely use
the printer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Happens all the time (i.e., no IPP broadcast following boot).

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Network two (2) linux machines with only one having local printer.
2. Boot machine without local printer(s)
3. Boot machine with FC6 and local printer(s) that are susposedly shared.
Actual results:

Output from "lpstat -a" on linux machine without local printer is blank

Expected results:

Output from "lpstat -a" on linux machine with local printer should
show the printer(s) local to the FC6 linux machine.

Additional info:

# Show shared printers on the local network.
Browsing On
BrowseOrder allow,deny
# (Change '@LOCAL' to 'ALL' if using directed broadcasts from another subnet.)
BrowseAllow @LOCAL

On the FC6 server, select System->Administration->Printing from the panel menu
and click on 'Server Settings'.  Is the 'Share published printers connected to
this system' checkbox checked?

Comment 2 Gerry Graesser 2007-01-04 17:46:41 UTC
No it was not checked.  After I checked it and
restarted cups everything was working as expected.
I should have done a better job of "snooping" on
my updated FC6 machine before filing this bug report.
Thanks for your help.
