Description of problem: 
Cups won't print printer test page.  When the test page button is pressed in a 
chosen printer dialog, the url passed to the browser contains the local host 
name, instead of "localhost" or  This appears to prevent the cups 
server from getting the request.  When I manually alter the URL to specify 
"localhost" instead of the local host name, the URL is passed just fine to 
cups and the test page prints fine. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
cups 1.1.17 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.  open cups 
2.  select a printer 
3.  click on print test page. 
Actual results: 
An error occured while loading 
Could not connect to host bubo6 (port 631) 
Expected results: 
Should provide the correct URL to pass to the cups server so that the test 
page prints ok. 
Additional info: 
Worked fine in 8.0.
