Thank you for this clarification.

I do not think I explained my situation very well. This printer (hp
LaserJet 1160Le) is connected directly to my FreeBSD server via USB.
If I print something logged on the server (via lp for instance), it
prints. I wish to print to this printer from all of the computers on
my LAN. When I try to print something from one of these computers,
that is when it bombs and displays the foomatic-rip error message
The directions on that sheet appear to be if I wanted to print to
this network printer that wasn't directly connected to the FreeBSD
server. Am I mistaken about this? Also, there is no button on the
printer that will print such a page, so I would have to figure out
how to find this IP address by other means. I cannot see how to find
it in the CUPS web interface. I assume CUPS issues it an IP address.
The error_log that I have posted on previous threads is attached to
this email (the successful print jobs were done locally while the
error occurred when I printed to the printer from my MacBook Pro).
Does anyone have any suggestions? I should note that prior to the
CUPS upgrade to 1.2.0 (and the recent gnutls update), my setup was
working (I was able to print from the server itself as well as all of
the rest of the computers on my LAN). I have rebuilt all packages
several times (except for the OS).
-------------- next part --------------
On my MacBook Pro, when I go to the CUPS web interface, I see the
following for the printer:
hp_LaserJet_1160Le at 192.168.0.3 HP LaserJet 1160 Foomatic/hpijs
Description: hp LaserJet 1160Le
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
192.168.0.3 is the IP address of my FreeBSD server on my LAN. It
looks as if Mac OS X 10.4.7 runs CUPS 1.1.23, but I could be
mistaken. It has found the printer through Bonjour (zeroconf I
believe is another name for it), so I didn't have to do any
configuring. Could there be an incompatibility within these versions
of CUPS? I have found the following page which lists several issues
and talks about how CUPS 1.2.0 is broken in several places. Could one
of these be the issue?

Thank you for your assistance on this.
