    iprint & cups coexistence on OES server

    Looking for a way to run an iPrint server on OES and having that OES server
    use the iprint client to print to its own printers.
    However there is a conflict between CUPS used by the iPrint Client and iPrint.
    iPrint server will not come up unless CUPS is disabled and the iPrint
    client cannot load CUPS when it is not up. (Child exited with status 98)
    Tried reconfiguring CUPS to a different port (632) and IP in cupsd.conf,
    but unsuccesfull so far.
    Anyone had experience on this ?

    What I think needs to be done is configuring either iPrint or CUPS to a
    secondary IP on OES. but iPrint will not let me do that during install, and
    I cant find correct info on doing anything with CUPS.
    I know iFolder can be installed to a secondar IP on OES so why not iPrint ?

    Let me know if you have anything :-)

    Kind Regards Bjørn

    I have seen this problem, but haven't seen anyone get both iPrint and CUPS
    going on an OES box. I'll try it tomorrow and see if I can get it to work.

    How to install iPrint for local printer on SLES9





    I use following configuration:
    SLES9-SP1, Cups printing installed, local HP laser printer on LPT1.
    Everything works fine.

    After installing OES with iPrint I got an error on cups because both
    services use port 631.

    How can I configure my OES server to use the local HP laser printer on LPT1
    with iPrint?

    Re: iprint & cups coexistence on OES server

    I have got a 6.5 server with NDPS/iPrint running and Zenworks printing
    policies to push those printers to Win XP desktops. I also have an OES SP2
    SLES9 server in the same tree.

    Now I am looking at some software to manage printing costs, and this one
    only works with Windows or CUPS printers. So I am wondering what the
    solution for me might be .. if I could somehow get our NDPS printers running
    (?) through CUPS just for the purpose of accounting and maintaining print
    credits for users, while still being able to use Zenworks to deliver iPring
    printers and printer profiles to desktops.

    I only found this http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/qna/1733.html remotely
    related to the problem. CUPS and NDPS do not seem to overlap in any way do
    they .. besides competing for the same port ?

    I don't think so . If you create a second IP and bind cups to it after
    the install I think they will coexist. The Listen directives in the
    cupsd.conf file should make it play nicely.

    Re: iprint & cups coexistence on OES server

    There are a couple non-daemon (not CUPS or LPRNng or a complete printing
    package) solutions that may work for you.

    If your jobs are print-ready (ie. text or postscript), you can use rlpr.
    Rlpr can submit print-ready jobs to a remote or local print server.

    http://truffula.com/rlpr/

    You might also want to look at lpr-bash which looks like it can actually
    process graphics and get jobs print-ready before submission and does not
    run as a daemon.

    http://lpr-bash.sourceforge.net/
