You can configure CUPS to administer print queues on a remote print server. Typically, you can connect to remote servers within the same local area network (LAN). Only those print queues that are owned by the remote print server to which you are connected can be modified. Each remote server determines whether its configured print queues can be shared or remotely modified based on the Settings dialog for the specified printer.
Published printers are printers that are publicly announced by the server on the LAN, based on how the cupsd.conf file has been configured for browsing. Shared or published printers can be detected by remote print clients but unshared or unpublished printers are not announced on the network.
The Basic Server Settings dialog is displayed.
Publish Shared Printers Connected to This System – Displays the shared or published printers that can be detected by remote print clients. If you do not enable this option, some printers might not be displayed in the list of available printers when you connect to the remote server.
Allow Remote Administration – Enables you to connect to a remote server.
The Connect to CUPS Server dialog is displayed.
You can now remotely administer print queues on the remote system in the same way that you administer local print queues.
