I recently withed from CentOS 3 X server to CentOS 4.5. It works fine
other than printers.
there are many printers connected to it. We have configured the commnad

Some times, we will be able to print , But, some times, We will NOT be
able to print.
We can ping its ip address. Even, when we can't print, We can ping its
When we check logs , we see something like this.
[Job 888] Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...:
Connection timed out
Then, What we do is , We go to application, system setting, printing
and when we get the window, We click apply button,
Then, again, We will be able to print.
Could u pls let me know why?
But, When We used CentOS 3X, it worked fine. No problem at all.
here are rpms installed on CentOS 3X
[root at lwlsvr_old root]# rpm -qa |grep cups
[root at lwlsvr_old root]# rpm -qa |grep samba
But, on CentOS 4.5 , We get issues.
here are rpms installed on CentOS 4.5
[root at lwlsvr ~]# rpm -qa |grep cups
[root at lwlsvr ~]# rpm -qa |grep samba
Hope to hear form you.
