[K12OSN] IP Printers on the Terminal Side of LTSP

On the terminal side of LTSP server ... do you mean you have a printer 
connected to the terminal or do you have an IP printer on the terminal 
network? If IP printer you should check if the printer is set up with the 
same IP and config that applys to your terminal network.

I had the same problem (last issue was with the printer network card that 
needed to be replaced). If CUPS shows that this IP is busy it may be that it 
just was unable to connect to it.
