Ive been fighting with "CUPS" since many hours (too many) and I still cannot figure out whats wrong, I installed a printer on a Debian Machine, when I will add a printer I have two options "Local printers" and appear the printer that is connected (the one I want to use to print from my network) and "Other network printers", so, I thought maybe I should add local printer and I chosed my printer and I installed and all.. .and prints the tests and all... so, from windows I added my printer with the url
http://192.168.1.2/printers/myprinter but doesnt work, I read more and I find out the IPP protocol, some use it but some use AppSocket/HP JetDirect, I am very confused, which is the way I should add this printer? do I have to add a printer in the section of network ptiners?? any idea??? I dont get the logic of add network printer, seriously(I might be dumb for this).
I installed samba and I added this
<Location /printers> Order allow,deny Allow 192.168.0.* Allow 192.168.1.* </Location>
When I add printers on windows it asks for 3 options, first search (shows me computers on network, I cant choose the machine with debian, it asks me to login.. I dont know which user, its not Debian's OS , neither windows), second its "selected shared printer" I can not enter ipp:// , it only accepts http:// , and third one is printer throught TPC/IP, there I can add http:// ipp:// or socket:// but none of them are success...
