    Ubuntu Server 11.04. Help configuring Lamp Print Server.

    I have Ubuntu server 11.04 with Lamp installed using the following instructions.

    http://www.ubuntugeek.com/step-by-st...ver-setup.html

    Its been up and running for some time but I wanted to add a print server to use locally.


    I ran taskel and added the print server.

    Then I installed the hp tools. and ran


    Code:
    sudo hp-setup -i

    I'm showing the printer configured, and I set it to default.
    Code:
    lpstat -p -d
    printer HP_LaserJet_P1006 is idle.  enabled since Tue 31 Jan 2012 07:23:53 PM CST
    no system default destination
    Code:
    lpoptions -d HP_LaserJet_P1006
    Code:
    lpstat -p -d
    printer HP_LaserJet_P1006 is idle.  enabled since Tue 31 Jan 2012 07:23:53 PM CST
    system default destination: HP_LaserJet_P1006
    I tried printing a test page.

    Code:
    lpr /etc/fstab
    The Printer is showing as Printing but nothing happens.

    Code:
    lpstat -p -d
    printer HP_LaserJet_P1006 now printing HP_LaserJet_P1006-1.  enabled since Tue 31 Jan 2012 07:46:06 PM CST
    system default destination: HP_LaserJet_P1006
    I also cannot find the device when trying to add it on another box running mint 10.

    cups.conf settings

    Code:
    # Only listen for connections from the local machine.
    #Listen localhost:631                   #existing loopback Listen       
    #Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock         #existing socket Listen
    #Listen 192.168.1.20:631                #Listen on the LAN interface, Port 631 (IPP)
    Port 631                                #Listen on port 631 on all interfaces
    Code:
    # Show shared printers on the local network.
    Browsing On
    BrowseOrder allow,deny
    BrowseAllow all
    BrowseLocalProtocols CUPS dnssd
    BrowseAddress @LOCAL

    Help, what am I doing wrong?

    I had problems getting CUPS setup as well...mainly because I'm a Linux noob. A nice person pointed me in the direction of Zentyal and I was able to setup a new (virtual) print server very quickly with dozens of HP LaserJets and Brother HL printers.

    I know this probably won't help your situation for bolting on another service to an existing server but thought I'd share anyway.

    I am also working on documenting everything I did setting up this print server in my environment and will post my how-to notes on Zentyal's forums today or tomorrow. If I remember, I will update this post with a link to it.

    That looks like A nice custom Linux Distro for small office use.
    I may switch my box over to that and dump the web server portion.
    I should really buy dedicated hosting to for that type of service anyways.

    I was looking. Do you know if they offer a Nas Option? I would setup a box with Raid, and use an NFS etc.

    As promised, here is the thread I created to document my install / setup notes. It is still a work-in-progress.
