Description Tim Waugh 2007-12-12 12:16:24 EST
It would be great if system-config-printer could offer some advice with sharing
printers.  For example, the 'Add Printer' dialog could offer a choice 'CUPS
shared printer' which would show an explanation of how to get printer browsing

Some common problems are:
- CUPS server is not on same subnet, and _remote_any==0
- Server is not sharing published printers
- Wireless network router filters out CUPS browse packets

In fact, it could even have a trouble-shooting dialog where you type in the name
of the CUPS server and it tries to find out what's wrong.  This could detect the
first two problems above (the first by comparing IP addresses and interface
addresses, and the second by looking at _share_printers).
