CUPS Processes

For CUPS to manage your printing environment, you must first create a print queue under CUPS. The print queue might point to a printer that is connected directly to your system through a USB port or a parallel port. However, the queue can also point to a printer on the network, a printer on the Internet, or multiple printers, depending on how you have configured the application. Regardless of where the queue points, the print queue is treated like any other printer.
