Hi,

Thanks evryone for giving your support. I downlaoded cups rpm from
Centos 4.7 and updated on CentOS 4.5 . But, problem still exists.

Now, May I know Can I download cups from Cent OS 3.6 and install on CentOS 4.5?

The reason for that is , On Cent OS 3.6, it worked perfectly.

Hope to hear from you.

We have a CentOS 4.x server at a hosting facility that currently has 73
printers defined on various protocols (socket, ipp, lpd) which can see
extensive delays in print jobs.  We are seeing the same error in our
logs.  As a work around for this issue you can do a cupsdisable then a
cupsenable for the effected printer which should clear the delay and
start it working again, provided that you can ping the printer and the
printer itself is not causing the problem. If that does not fix it try
doing a service cups restart.
