Subject:   Question about FreeBSD 6.2 Release and CUPS
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
Can someone please tell me the steps I need to do so that I can use CUPS as 
the printing system on FreeBSD 6.2 Release and so that I can connect to the 
CUPS server and administer it using the KDE Control Center?

I've tried everything I can find using Google to get CUPS working with KDE, 
but even when I manually configure the server to "Listen localhost:631", the 
KDE control center shows the server as "localhost:w" and can't connect. Any 
help would be appreciated.

Starting from a new install of FreeBSD 6.2 Release, what packages/ports do I 
need to (install/not install) and what procedures do I need to perform in 
order to get CUPS working and configurable via KDE control center? Please 
specify details. Thanks

One last question. Do I need to unset these in sysctl.conf for CUPS 
administration to work?

With them set, trying to connect to the administration page of CUPS via the 
web interface timed out and then failed, but when I removed the entries, the 
connection failed immediately. If I must unset them, is there another way to 
stealth ports 0 and 1 via firewall settings instead?
