Cannot add printer to CUPS
Authored by: mgmcotton on Nov 06, '02 01:03:24PM

I previously posted this to a wrong comment so this is a second posting. Please help all the same.

I have successfully followed each step but when I got to ipaddress.xx/631:printers to add a second printer I get the following error:
"Forbidden
You don't have permission to access the resource on this server."

I am signed in as the adminstrator and I have also repaired permissions just in case.

Any other suggestions as how to add the second priner?

Thanks for your help.

This happens when you try it with IE 5.2. Just do it with OmniWeb and everything will be fine.

I tried this but to no avail. I still get the message that I do not have the
permissions to access these resources.

I even repaired perimssions using Disk Utility and PCR 2.03.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Funny, I had the same issue for forbidden...

change the URI from IP addresses to your local name :

FROM: http://127.0.0.1:631/printers or FIXED IP

TO: http://localhost:631/printers

Worked for me...

I had this problem, but realised it was a result of my proxy being set. I unset the proxy, typed in the URL with IP, and it worked no problem.

Why on earth the proxy was being used for 127.0.0.1 by default I'll never know!
