The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) manages printing on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Users configure printers in CUPS on their host to print. Additionally, you can share printers in CUPS to use the host as a print server.
CUPS supports printing to:
  • AirPrint™ and IPP Everywhere™ printers
  • Network and local USB printers with printer applications
  • Network and local USB printers with legacy PostScript Printer Description (PPD)-based drivers
