Sorry if this as been covered before, I just joined the list, and none of my
searches came up with anything within the past year regarding my current
We have two print servers here, one Mac OS X 10.4 Server, one Windows 2003
R2 Server. The Windows computers print off the windows server through AD no
problem. Our macs, printed via cups to the mac server with minor problems.
The cups printers are advertised via a number of BrowseAddress statements to
our macs, and on 10.4 the printers show up as "Shared Printers" on the print
menu, no need to configure or add them.
In 10.5, they do not show up. Tcpdump shows the advertisement packets going
into the computer, but no printers are listed in the print menu, or under
the default browser when trying to add printers. Netstat shows a few
thousand packets in the udp4 queue for *:ipp, meaning they're getting
there, but apparently not being processed.
Right, the default configuration in Leopard is to share (advertise)
via CUPS protocol, but not to listen (discover) via CUPS protocol.
Use the following command on your 10.5 clients to re-enable CUPS
Once this is set, the printers will still not appear in the print
dialog until you "add" them via the "Add Printer..." choice in
the print dialog. You can search on "CUPS Shared" to limit the
list of printers in the add printer dialog to the CUPS shared
That said, the 10.5 clients should also be able to see the
printers via Bonjour already - they'll show up in the Add Printer
window as "Bonjour Shared" printers...
