Please start the printing configuration tool (System->Administration->Printing),
and select Help->Troubleshoot from the menu bar and follow the instructions. 
What happens?  If there is debugging output, please paste it in here.
Comment 2 Steve 2008-03-06 05:35:45 EST
there is no problem on the printer host (rawhide), and the client (f8) has no
troubleshooter. what shall i do?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2008-03-06 05:50:54 EST
Start the troubleshooter and select a printer.  Then, when it asks you to submit
a test print job, submit one from the F-8 client and when it appears in the
little box, select the check-box to mark it as your test job.
Comment 4 Steve 2008-03-06 07:45:43 EST
this is the joke. there is no print job from another machine (f8) in this little
box from the troubleshooter..
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2008-03-06 08:09:24 EST
Did you submit the job to the same printer as you selected?
Comment 6 Steve 2008-03-06 08:19:17 EST
yes it did.
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2008-03-06 08:41:26 EST
On the client, what does 'locale' say?
Comment 8 Steve 2008-03-06 09:43:04 EST
$ locale
Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2008-03-06 09:46:28 EST
Collecting more information to try to find the problem:

1. What does '/usr/sbin/cupsctl -U root' say on the rawhide CUPS server?
2. What does 'lpstat -s' say on the F-8 CUPS client, and which queues are on the
rawhide server?
Comment 10 Steve 2008-03-06 10:17:18 EST
[root@StarsEnd ~]# /usr/sbin/cupsctl -U root
SystemGroup=sys root
[root@StarsEnd ~]#

[sysop@artchaos ~]$ lpstat -s
system default destination: i865
device for i865: ipp://
[sysop@artchaos ~]$ 

There are no queues on the rawhide server.
Comment 11 Tim Waugh 2008-03-06 10:28:04 EST
But is the rawhide machine isn't it?

Please try this:

lp -h192.168.100.3 -di865 /usr/share/cups/data/testprint.ps

What happens?
Comment 12 Steve 2008-03-06 10:32:15 EST
[sysop@artchaos ~]$ lp -h192.168.100.3 -di865 /usr/share/cups/data/testprint.ps
lp: No route to host
[sysop@artchaos ~]$

Comment 14 Steve 2008-03-06 10:48:24 EST
[sysop@artchaos ~]$ traceroute
traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
 1  starsend (  0.223 ms !X  0.195 ms !X  0.198 ms !X
[sysop@artchaos ~]$
Comment 15 Tim Waugh 2008-03-06 11:20:59 EST
The iptables rules on the rawhide machine are preventing inbound traffic to TCP
port 631.
Comment 16 Thomas Woerner 2008-03-06 12:15:25 EST
Please use system-config-firewall and mark your intranet interface as trusted or
mark the IPP printing service as trusted.
Comment 17 Steve 2008-03-06 12:44:19 EST
Added new port 631:tcp:ipp as trustet in system-config-firewall. I can print again.
Comment 18 Tim Waugh 2008-03-06 18:08:37 EST
Re-opening.  It's quite an imposition to expect users to know how to do this.
Comment 19 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 01:48:54 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
