Re: [K12OSN]Centos+USB+local printer... and sharing it

Here's the current stage... the dhcpd.conf file is working, it is assigning it an IP (and it is PCE boot)

    host ws099 {
    hardware ethernet 00:30:18:a6:97:a9;
    filename      "/lts/pxe/pxelinux.0";

In lts.conf I have the terminal stated like this:

PRINTER_0_DEVICE        =/dev/usb/lp0
PRINTER_0_TYPE          = U
MODULE_01          = usblp

In CUPS I added it like this, choosing HP and Laserjet 1200:


CUPS shows it as started, and it looks all happy:

Jun 12 00:00:11 ws099 lp_server: Started with: -n 9100 -w -d /dev/usb/lp0
Jun 12 00:00:11 ws099 last message repeated 8 times
Jun 12 00:00:11 ws099 init: Id "p0" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
Jun 12 00:02:08 bofh2 kernel: ppdev: user-space parallel port driver
Jun 12 00:05:12 ws099 lp_server: Started with: -n 9100 -w -d /dev/usb/lp0
Jun 12 00:05:32 ws099 ltspinfod: Connection from port 40283
Jun 12 00:06:31 ws099 ltspinfod: Connection from port 40319
Jun 12 00:12:38 ws099 lp_server: Started with: -n 9100 -w -d /dev/usb/lp0

CUPS gives an error of:
"/usr/lib/cups/backend/socket failed"

and the printer goes into:
Printer State: stopped, accepting jobs, published.

While it is in this stopped state, lpstat -l -a shows this:
lpstat -l -a
HP accepting requests since Thu 12 Jun 2008 12:13:54 AM CDT

So, I am hitting all around it. Probably. Suggestions?

I've been following the USB printer discussion with interest, I am
preparing to work on my first local printer. Here is it's situation.

It's an HP 1200 laser, currently the only printer on the system. It's
working fine attached to the terminal, but it's use would be better
served as a client's local printer.  Reading through the comments on
using a static setting in dhcpd makes sense, except the 'main user' will
not be always logging in at that terminal. I don't want to specify this
terminal (or it's printer) to always be one user. Specifying the printer
by MAC in lts.conf seems like it would solve this problem.

How can I use CUPS to point to a MAC address? A static IP would be fine
for this terminal, if that would help CUPS always find it.

Other users in other locations need to use this printer as well.
