Hello,
I have installed ubuntu server installed file/printer services and setup two samba shares.
I think I have edited the samba file correctly for printer sharing but need to setup cups.

I have plugged in my HP2575 printer/scanner to the server using a usb connection.
any easy guides on how to setup cups and samba for print server?

what should I use for backup up the data on the server?

thanks in advance

I just have my website copied to an external HD. For the /home, you can make a tarball. The rest is unimportant.

As for the print server, at cli try sudo tasksel .... it'll bring up a menu which may have an option to install the print server portion of ubuntu.

If I recall correctly doesn't CUPS have a web interface that should have been installed?

http://localhost:631
how do I allow access to the cups webinterface from another machine on the lan?
it was a nightmare to navigate using a text browser from the server itself.

Access would be through a browser using the IP address and credentials of a valid user on the cups machine.. http://<ip_address>:631
