Theres some stuff in Jul 23 also, and all of this is after bringing it 
home, and I haven't tried to print anything from it since coming home.

So cups has been updated 4 times since Jul 23, and since the last time I 
printed anything.

It is running, and was not a problem when I originally set it up to use an 
epson c88 I'd bought while in Iron Mountain, but I can stop it, did and 
also disabled it from being restarted.

Now whats the procedure to tell it to listen for ipp broadcasts from 
another address in this same block, so that it will recognize what this 
machine is shareing to the rest of the machines on this home network? I 
went thru the motions of adding lp1, at ipp://coyote.coyote.den:631, which 
seemed to work but stopped the printer in a few seconds when a test page 
was sent.  At no time during the configuration loop was I presented with a 
list of available printers recognizable as being this machines printer 
list.  The error.log says the destination printer does not exist.  And, 
strangly, I logged into that kubuntu system out in the shop, and running 
firefox by sending it to localhost:631, it can't find these printers 
either.  In april of this year I used that facility to print an 83 page 
document!  And nothing on this system has been changed except kernel 
versions, many times.

Ditto for the firewall box, which also worked before. WTH?  Obviously 
something has changed on this box so it is not now shareing its printers, 
but I've NDI what.  Ideas anyone?

Cheers, Gene
