Trying to print with CUPS from Chromebook through Debian box to USB printer
I'm trying to be able to print from a client machine over my lan to an older HP Laserjet 1012 connected via USB to a Debian box. It prints fine directly.
I've gone through many CUPS tutorials and made queues with the web interface and with lpadmin.
I did these basic things too:
lpadmin -p NetworkLaserjet -o -printer-is-shared=true
The client machine is a chromebook (Chrome OS version 92). I saw on this google page for enterprise help that said over version 80 it was looking for ipps.
My lpinfo never shows any ipps:
Kevin@server:~$ /usr/sbin/lpinfo -v network socket network beh network ipp file cups-brf:/ network http network https network lpd network ipps serial serial:/dev/ttyS0?baud=115200 direct hp:/usb/hp_LaserJet_1012?serial=00CNFB153153 direct usb://HP/LaserJet%201012?serial=00CNFB153153 direct parallel:/dev/lp0 network smb direct hpfax
nmapping the numeric ip address of the server has identical output on the server and client machine,but nmap doesn't list port 631 which I had expected because it's in cupsd.conf.
LogLevel warn PageLogFormat MaxLogSize 0 Listen localhost:631 Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock Listen 10.0.1.*:631 Browsing Yes DefaultEncryption IfRequested BrowseLocalProtocols all DefaultAuthType Basic WebInterface Yes <Location /> Order allow,deny Allow localhost Allow 10.0.1.* </Location> <Location /printers> Order allow,deny Allow 10.0.1.* </Location> <Location /admin> Order allow,deny </Location> <Location /admin/conf> AuthType Default Require user @SYSTEM Order allow,deny Allow localhost Allow 10.0.1.29 </Location> <Location /admin/log> AuthType Default Require user @SYSTEM Order allow,deny </Location> <Policy default> JobPrivateAccess default JobPrivateValues default...
(followed by lots more Policies and Limits. Could post them if you think it's pertinent, but I didn't edit.)
Unsurprisingly when I put the server address,
10.0.1.29:631 into the Add Print Server form on the client Chromebook, it says "Couldn't detect the print server. Please check the address and try again."
Any help on what I'm missing is greatly appreciated. Thanks, kserwick
