Printing to a Cups Server without using the local CUPS Network
If you create a file called .cupsrc with contents:
ServerName myserver
Encryption IfRequested
(where myserver is the name of the CUPS server) in your home directory, then you can print entirely through the server, without using CUPS on the local machine. But faxing over the server is then not available.

You may have to also edit the /etc -> cups -> cupsd.conf file on the server to enable browsing and give the server a name.

Printing to a Cups Server without using the local CUPS

Works great; reduces network traffic dramatically when user home folders are located on a fileserver (especially when using M$ applications).

However, this method is not recommended for clients that regularly detach from the network (like laptops). Various applications that need some kind of a printer definition start up with a (LONG) delay (and a lot of applications appear to need that).

If would be nice to have a CUPS server selection somewhere (preferably in the location manager).

But maybe someone already has a solution for this (?)
