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  
(foomatic-rip failed).

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	HP LaserJet 1160 Foomatic/hpijs  
	Description: hp LaserJet 1160Le
Location: Den
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs. 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?
