Configuring CUPS clients

Jurjen Bokma

September 2007

The CUPS daemon needs not run on CUPS clients. Under Debian, it can be turned off by /etc/init.d/cupsys stop && update-rc.d -f cupsys remove . Then create /etc/cups/client.conf by echo "ServerName" > /etc/cups/client.conf and try lpq to see whether it worked.


Of course you still have to allow the client to use some printers on the CUPS server.
