Re: [K12OSN] CentOS + USB devices



Have you tried adding the printer using the IP address of the thin
client to which the printer is attached? e.g. instead of listing the
printer by the hostname of the thin client, on the LTSP server, when
adding the printer via CUPS, use socket://IP_address_of_client:9100 .

Sincerely,
Dave Hopkins
