    Cannot print from Windows 2000 to HP through Cups.


    As far as I can tell I've done everything exactly right. I did exactly what I did before with Fedora Core 1 and had no problems then.

    I set up my Photosmart C4200 in Kubuntu and it works properly. The Cups daemon IS running. I get on Windows 2000 and add a printer by having it search for a shared printer. It FINDS my Photosmart C4200 on the Kubuntu box, shows me the exact address... (http://192.168.1.2:631/printers/Photosmart_C4200). Windows 2000 then begs for a driver. I put the hp cd in the tray, it finds the right driver and installs it. Windows then adds the printer, I make it the default. It shows itself as "ready" and taking jobs, yet it simply will NOT print from Windows 2000 no matter what!

    This is the very same procedure I went through here with an hp 5550 and I had everything working in 10 minutes. Why will the Windows machine not print to my HP printer which it obviously detects and configures?

    I've got to be overlooking something simple. Please help me with this. I've spent hours upon hours and still get the same result. Nothing.

    It's been a long time since I banged my head against the wall with Linux. I just started back... lol...

    I've benn working on this all day and it just seems it must be a misconfiguration in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf. I've tried countless things and still cannot get a print job from Windows to Kubuntu. Here is the cupsd.conf...
    Code:
    #   Sample configuration file for the Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS)
    #   scheduler.  See "man cupsd.conf" for a complete description of this
    #   file.

    I think this has got to be the most hopeless computer situation I've ever encountered. I've spent countless hours for three days trying just about every single thing I've found on Google to no avail and no one here will help me.

    I can print to this cups server from another Linux machine without problems, but from two Windows machines, it simply will not work no matter what I do. I can't take it when there are no answers and seemingly not even a hope for one.

    You mean no one has even the slightest idea about this??

    The error I keep getting repeatedly in the cups error log is:
    Code:
     SLPReg of "Photosmart_C4200" failed with status -20!
