I try to configure a printer on my local network but all attemps fail.
I have a printer attached to one computer on an usb port and I want to
use it with other computers on my local network.
I opened firefox on one computer and miracle: the printer attached to
the other computer is discovered and cups admin interface asks me if I
want to add this printer. Nice: the job is easy!! *But* this does not
work at all!!
Sending a test page returns that the printer is not responding.
I tried to cofigure the printer using the "Add printer" way and chose
ipp. According to the given syntax, I wrote: ipp://name-of-server/ipp
but this does not work: sending a test page returns that the printer is
misconfigured or no longer exists...
I replaced the name of the server by its IP address... same result.
I tried: ipp://name-of-server:631/printers/name-of-printer-on-server. It
does not work, the message is now: Filter failed.
What fiter? I don't know as cups logs no longer exist since systemd...
Does somebody know a solution?
