I have a printer (HP ENVY 5530) connected wirelessly to the network, and a Print/File Server connected to the same network, that I want to use to share the printer to some windows computers.
Printer address is 192.168.1.16
Server address is 192.168.1.30
I have attempted many times to utilise UCS print service to share the printer on the network and most attempts have failed (Windows cannot find printer) or in some cases the printer share is found and printer installed, but nothing (not even a test page will print), in this case the file /var/log/cups/access_log shows 'Print-Job successful-ok" but again, nothing was printed. However this file also shows many entries ending with "CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer client-error-not-possible), example:
localhost - FileServer$ [10/Jan/2018:00:02:39 +0800] “POST /admin/ HTTP/1.1” 200 278 CUPS-Add-Modify-Printer client-error-not-possible
localhost - - [10/Jan/2018:00:03:04 +0800] “POST /printers/f30printer HTTP/1.1” 200 294266 Print-Job successful-ok
I know this printer works because I have tested it directly from windows machines.
I have been trying for hours to get this printer to work from my Print Server and have done much research online to resolve this issue but to no avail, I have exhausted all my options and now I am asking here, if anyone can please help me find out what is wrong with my configuration and get my printer working, I would greatly appreciate it.
