Print Server

Mon Jul 23, 2018 9:12 pm

Hi Folks,

Are you able to assist with an issue I am having now? I have attempted to configure my pi as a print server, using CUPS.

I installed CUPS, configured a printer and from within cups on the local server / from any other computer on the network - I can print a test page from within without issue.

I can browse to the pi online, connect to the printer and try to install it - I create a new printer, set the ip and port and it now transfers the print job from the local machine to the printer on the p (windows test page).

"Sending data to printer."

This is how the page seems to remain (stuck in the buffer). I have uploaded a text copy of the log file, as I cancelled one job and restarted it at 22:00 (21:00 in the log file). I upload it to my drive as it doesnt appear text files are permitted to be uploaded within the forum: ... sp=sharing

If Anyone is able to advise why this is failing I would appreciate it.
