  • Linux Lite: 4.2 64bit

  • CPU: i5

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Nvidio GeForce
New installation and I am having trouble with sharing a printer.  I followed the manual and setup the iptables rules and can telnet on TCP 631 but I can't connect via browser and get an error in policies saying "Not published, See server settings". Not sure what to do.  I see the "server settings" in the manual, but unable to find them in 4.2

It might help for you to share the make and model number of the printer.

It is a Canon MF4350D.  I installed the script from Canon and everything works, it is just not possible to share.  The checkbox for sharing is enabled, and I can connect locally to CUPS, but as stated the dialog says "Not published, See server settings".

@UngaBunga1

In case you haven't: https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/hardware.html#printer

From what I can see.. trying to replicate.
From "Printers" when you RT Click the printer and look at the properties then policies - you see "Printer not published"

To correct, Close the properties window.
Just above Add is "Server" click this then "Settings" in the "Basic Server Settings" window, enable the check box for "Publish shared printers connected to this system".
Click ok then go back to the printers properties to confirm.

If testing across the network, ensure LL Firewall is disabled for testing (see link above)...

@Jerry

Right Clicking the printer choosing properties under policies - you can see the message.

 



 



Go back < Server < Settings add check next to Publish shared printers...... Click OK

 



 

No more Message displayed that its not published...
