#229 fixed CUPS should not scan the local network for printers jdreed geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


CUPS by default scans the local network for printers. While this seems at first glance to be either good or neutral. it's the case that lots of users have their personal laptops configured (incorrectly, arguably, but it still happens) to print to Athena printers and then share their local configuration of that printer.

For example, is seeing both a "tree-eater" (which I've locally configured because it's Kerberized; see ATN-28) and a "tree_eater", which someone in the dorm has set up. Users should not click an Athena cluster printer's name in the GUI and get some random laptop as their print server.

#397 fixed CUPS should probably support lpr -Pprinter2 geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


For backwards-compatibility reasons, we should continue to support -Pprinter2 in the CUPS world. We don't currently configure these printers on; we can either do so, and figure out how to make a queue that duplexes by default, or figure out if this can be auto-generated locally.

One issue to avoid is displaying printer2 printers in the graphical browser.

#184 fixed CUPS should support zephyr notification of print job status tabbott

Reported by tabbott, 15 years ago.


In r23954 we restored -z as the default for LPRng, which was easy enough to do with the Athena lprng servers.

Athena's CUPS servers should also gain support for sending zephyrs when your print job completes (or runs into an error), and this option should be set by default.
