- CUPS daemon does not "discover" available network printers.
- How to configure
/etc/cupsd.confso that CUPS will discover networked printers. We have a number of Lexmark laser printers available on our network. I use them with my other RHEL 6.5 hosts just fine, but this RHEL 7.1 host does will not "discover" any available networked printers.
- I tried adding
BrowsePoll printserver:631to my
cupsd.conffile but that throws an error about an unrecognized directive.
