    Install printers for network printing in Server 12.04

    The printer is automatically recognized and configured in Desktop edition, so I know that it works for Linux, but getting it work in the Server version is quite difficult.

    The server does recognize the USB device:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Bus 005 Device 002: ID 0686:3006 Minolta Co., Ltd PagePro 1250W
    I installed CUPS, but in any case, the printer is not installed in the OS:

    Code:
    lpstat -p
    printer PDF is idle.  enabled since Fri 21 Dec 2012 10:19:35 PM PST
    I don't know how to use the browser to access the thingie either:
    http://182.168.1.82:631 (local IP of my server)
    Forbidden


    Any gurus know what's up?


    -----------------
    Woohoo. Stupid me. I added a couple of "Allow all" to allow myself to add the printer via browser. It's working now.

    There are two sides to every story: my side and the wrong side.
