36.2. Adding an IPP Printer

An IPP printer is a printer attached to a different Linux system on the same network running CUPS or a printer configured on another operating system to use IPP. By default, the Ferramenta de Configuração da Impressora browses the network for any shared IPP printers. (This option can be changed by selecting Action => Sharing from the pulldown menu.) Any networked IPP printer found via CUPS browsing appears in the main window under the Browsed queues category.

If you have a firewall configured on the print server, it must be able to send and receive connections on the incoming UDP port, 631. If you have a firewall configured on the client (the computer sending the print request), it must be allowed to send and accept connections on port 631.

If you disable the automatic browsing feature, you can still add a networked IPP printer by clicking the New button in the main Ferramenta de Configuração da Impressora window to display the window in Figura 36-2. Click Forward to proceed.

Na janela exibida na Figura 36-3, indique um nome único para a impressora no campo Nome. O nome de uma impressora não pode conter espaços e deve começar por uma letra. Este nome pode conter letras, números, hífens (-) e underscores (_). Opcionalmente, indique uma breve descrição da impressora, que pode conter espaços.

After clicking Forward, Figura 36-5 appears. Select Networked CUPS (IPP) from the Select a queue type menu.
