Beware of
Authored by: R1 on Dec 20, '02 03:20:45AM

Hey hey,

Thanks for the tips. I just want to add that http://localhost:631 has a good chance of leading you nowhere in Internet Explorer (can't remember the name of the company who makes that...)

A NeXT/BSD/Linux geek was telling me lately that CUPS didn't work on OSX, and that's what happened to him, and he was right. His crime was, he just hadn't taken into account Microsoft's (there, I said it) incompetence.

The solution is to use http://127.0.0.1:631 instead. No, MS engwrxrniirs don't even know that. Most stupid loss of time of the month.
