I know its a CUPS issue, but as I am trying to set up a FreeBSD server 
to host printers with CUPS, I was hoping someone here might be able to 
help me. I need to disable the server from searching for other network 
print servers and printers. We have a bunch of network devices that send 
alerts every time they get hit by an SNMP query, attempting to add a 
printer or modify one triggers 230+ emails. Not to mention being slow as 
its on a large subnet, however the majority of the printers it will be 
hosting are not on the local subnet.

All the searching I have tried setting

BrowseRemoteProtocols none
in /usr/local/etc/cups/cups_browsed.conf

Browsing Off
BrowseLocalProtocols none
in /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf

No luck it still does it
