Installing cups via 127.0.0.1

big_smile    Having trouble getting  URL 127.0.0.1 to respond to the usual request for cups install....
     First time I entered ...http://127.0.0.1:631/printers  and received a
window which enabled me to start with ..admin
    I was asked for ID and password which was refused.

    After trying many times to get accepted I  canceled.

   I have attempted to retry the procedure many times(using google search) and I am now not able to connect to server 127.0.0.1.
  I don't have a clue toward solving this weirrrrrd happening!!! :?  :oops:

Re: Installing cups via 127.0.0.1

do you have the cups daemon running?

just so you know you should log in using your root user & pw to the cups config page.

make sure you add "cups" to the DAEMONS array in the /etc/rc.conf file.

if you want to start it w/o rebooting run /etc/rc.d/cups start

at least this is my guess as to why it's not available anymore.

big_smile  smile Hello again Hapy!
     I ran the /etc/rc.d/cups  start and was able to enter the install program and entered my root &passwd. 
     The program provided did not list my particular printer which is a lexmark optra E but I was able to utilize HP laser jet 4 entry to enable it.

    The printer is now working and I thank you for the solution to the perplexing failure to respond to a second entry into 127.0.0.1.

    I still have one more step to perform..reboot and check again!!

      Happy thanksgiving!! smile
