Thread: Network Printing

  1. #1

    Default Network Printing

    I just installed openSUSE 11.4 on my 2 home machines. My home network lies behind a nat router but I still use the external zone setting for my firewalls. In the past to enable network printing between the two computers I opened TCP and UDP port 631. Yast would then see the remote printer, set it up and all was good. This time Yast sees and sets up the remote printer as usual. When I print the test page nothing happens. Checking the cups admin page at localhost:631 on the host machine shows the printer is set up to share but nothing is in the print que. Printing works just fine on the host computer.

    Does anyone have a clue what is going on?

    There's a little more to it than just opening ports, you don't give any info on what you've done to configure the printer as shared on the server or what settings you have in yast for the printer on the client

    People might be better able to help if you give a bit more detailed information
