cups printer mystery.



The overall question is where is the information on printers displayed
in the system-config-printer gui interface coming from other than the
files in /etc/cups directory?

Let me specific. On a machine Atlas02 their appears in the gui interface
that a printer called portia can be shared from a machine with the IP
132.193.131.60. This information appears in the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
file as a line that says: Allow from 132.193.131.60

Now the problems. When one issues a lpc status command the result is a
large number of entries like:
portia Atlas02:
        printer is on device '/dev/null' speed -1
        queuing is enabled
        printing is enabled
        no entries
        daemon present
portia Atlas03:
        printer is on device '/dev/null' speed -1
        queuing is enabled
        printing is enabled
        no entries
        daemon present
These appear for all of our 5 printers and 50 machines. That makes no
sense but they can removed by removing the Allow from 132.193.131.60
line from the cupsd.conf file. However the gui still thinks the
printer portia is shared with the machine at 132.193.131.60.

So where am I going wrong. Is there another database that
system-config-printer is using?
