33.2. Adding an IPP Printer
An IPP printer is a printer attached to a different system on
the same TCP/IP network. The system this printer is attached to
may either be running CUPS or simply configured to use IPP.
If a firewall is enabled on the printer server, then the
firewall should be configured to allow send / receive
connections on the incoming UDP port 631. If a firewall is
enabled on on the client (the system sending the print request)
then the firewall must be allowed to accept and create
connections through port 631.
You can add a networked IPP printer by clicking the
New Printer button in the main
Printer Configuration Tool window to
display the window in Figure 33.2, “Adding a Printer”. Enter
the Printer Name (printer names cannot
contain spaces and may contain letters, numbers, dashes (-), and
underscores (_)), Description, and
Location to distinguish this printer from
others that you may configure on your system. Click
Forward to proceed.
In the window shown in Figure 33.4, “Adding an IPP Printer”, enter the hostname of the
IPP printer in the Hostname field as well
as a unique name for the printer in the Printername field.
