CUPS = Common UNIX Printing System

In order to search for the CUPS based printers connected to the computer (directly or via a network), use this command in the terminal:
lpstat -a
or type in the address field of a browser:
http://localhost:631/printers.

The following file controls the cups configurations:
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

Make sure you configure the file as follows:

1. Tell cupsd to listen broadcasts. This can be done by turning Browsing on
Browsing On.

2. Tell cupsd to listen broadcasts from other than local network as well.
BrowseOrder deny,allow
BrowseAllow ALL
