Requirements for the CUPS Web Browser Interface

To access the web browser interface, go to http://localhost:631. The CUPS web browser interface can be accessed from all supported browsers. Depending on the task that you are performing, you might be prompted for a user name and password, or for the root role and password.

    Note the following requirements for using the CUPS web browser interface:

  • The CUPS software packages must be installed on the host that is accessing the CUPS web pages. If you are running the Oracle Solaris 11.4 release, these software packages are installed on your system by default.

      The following CUPS packages are required:

    • cups

    • cups-libs

    • foomatic-db

    • foomatic-db-engine

  • The CUPS scheduler, svc:/application/cups/scheduler, must also be running on the host.

    To verify that the CUPS scheduler is running, open a terminal window and type the following command:

    $ svcs cups/scheduler
    STATE          STIME    FMRI
    online         10:07:54 svc:/application/cups/scheduler:default
  • The JavaScript scripting language must be supported and enabled on the browser that you are using to access the CUPS web pages.

    Most current browsers support the use of the JavaScript language. To determine whether the JavaScript language is enabled, check your browser's Preferences menu.
