I am hitting this topic for the first time - in other words I am total rookie on shared printers and so on. I am thankful for any sort of help! Anyway. I followed the instructions and:
- installed CUPS app
- added our printer as IP Client
- added our printer as Printer
When I visit
https://ucs.werkbank.intranet:631 I arrive at the dashboard of CUPS and I can see the printer. From there I can issue to print a test page. I even managed to add the printer to an Ubuntu system and run a print command from there.
Today we totally disabled any sort of Authentication on the printer itself. We even managed to install the root ca certificate from our Domain Controller on the Printer. But no matter if we were trying to use
http:// - both services are enabled on the printer - all we got was that found in
E [31/Mar/2023:08:50:20 +0100] [Client 215] Unable to encrypt connection: A TLS fatal alert has been received. E [31/Mar/2023:08:50:20 +0100] [Job 5] Druckerstatus konnte nicht ermittelt werden: E [31/Mar/2023:08:50:25 +0100] [Client 217] Unable to encrypt connection: A TLS fatal alert has been received.
Is there any way to find out if the setup on the UCS is correct such that we can concentrate to find the issue on the printer side?
The printer supports LDAP, do we need to enable it in order for this to work?
When I try to delete a Job on the CUPS Dashboard, it tells me that I am not allowed to do so, even though I am logged in with a Administrator account. Are there any permissions/user settings we have to make in order to be able to audit the printer on the ucs side?
When I try to delete Print Jobs from within the UCS Dashboard, I am getting this error:
Does the UCS try authenticate in some way on the printer? Are the credentials from the user passed over to the printer, or does UCS use a different account for that?
Thanks for any hints.
