I would like to print from a Solaris 10 workstation 
( to my FreeBSD server ( My idea
was to use Cups and ipp protocol on both 
machines since I have already got Cups up and running on my 
FreeBSD machine.

Cups on Solaris seems to be up to (I can access 
http://localhost:631) but whatever printer configuration I try to 
set, I keep receiving
 	Send Error: 7 code=403 (Forbidden) 
when I try to print the test page.

Perhaps I don't use the correct ipp URI ?
Perhaps my cupsd.conf is missing something?
Do I need to set some kind of authentication from Solaris to 

Error logs don't show anything but a message about sending the 
above error.

Thanks for your help or links to some howto's ,
