In Reply to: [gentoo-user] CUPS remote printing drives me crazy by Helmut Jarausch

I could not connect through the cups web interface.
In the end, I connected the printer with the command on the client computer:

lpadmin -p <printer_name_on_the_server> -E -v
ipp://<ip_address_server>/printers/<printer_name_on_the_server> -m

You can see <file_name_ppd_for_printer_model> with the command:

lpinfo -m

With respect, Pautov Aleksandr
