CUPS and network security
Authored by: robg on Dec 01, '03 01:07:09PM

When I tested this with my (completely stock) 10.3 install on my desktop Mac, my laptop could see the desktop machine's CUPS page -- I could see a list of every job that I'd printed right there on my laptop.

Once I made the change and removed LOCAL, then the laptop could no longer see the machine.

So I'm not sure I know exactly what you're saying, but the way my stock CUPS install works, anyone on the local network can see the CUPS page for any other local machine via http://that.machine.ip:631

This may be something that has changed between Jaguar and Panther. My stock cupsd.conf file on Jaguar has the following:
<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
I.e. there is no access from the local network. This may also be one of the things that gets preserved if you do an "upgrade" install.

Probably true -- all of my machines get clean installs on major dot upgrades. Much more of a pain in the butt, obviously, but generally worth it to make sure I see everything that a "new" install would get.
