Description Joshua Jensen 2002-06-08 07:19:39 UTC
Description of Problem:

1)  What could be better than a service that can use SSL?  Answer:  one that
uses SSL by default.  Why not make CUPS use HTTPS by default?

2)  Also, as /etc/cups/ssl/{server.crt,server.key} is mentioned in cupsd.conf,
shouldn't /etc/cups/ssl at least exist?  Once it exists, why not issue in the
rpm's %postinstall script:

ln -s /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt /etc/cups/ssl/server.crt
ln -s /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key /etc/cups/ssl/server.key

Perhaps in the next version of RHL, one or both of these small changes could be

Thank you,

CUPS is a beautiful thing.  Making it even better is good too.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-10-11 11:36:09 UTC
You want cups to depend on httpd?

Comment 3 Joshua Jensen 2002-10-11 14:35:45 UTC
Hmmm... you are right, we can't count on the certs to be there.  I guess cups
should just make it's own then.

Comment 4 Joshua Jensen 2004-09-24 17:52:21 UTC
ping... ?  Should we close this Tim?

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2004-09-27 08:12:05 UTC
Er.. if you like, but SSL is not the default at the moment.

Comment 6 Joshua Jensen 2004-09-27 16:06:17 UTC
Ok... but is it even a possibility?  If not, please close the case...
if so, any ETA on it?

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2004-09-27 16:27:55 UTC
It would certainly be nice to have.  ETA is very difficult to say,
because this is a feature compared to all the bugs lying around, and
so is quite low priority.

I'll close it DEFERRED for the time being, because it certainly won't
be in FC3.
