Re: [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.

Levi, first things first: does "telnet 9100" get you into
your jetdirect?
Maybe you have another device with this address on the network? Mabe the
jetdirect has hp protocol disabled?

I have over a hundred of embedded and external jetdirects, all on the
internal networks, with no problems.

Agree with Julius. Did you restart dhcpd service after change in IP
settings in dhcpd.conf?
