CUPS Print Sever - HP 1300

Anonymous anonymous at

I have set up a public file server and I also want to enable it as a print server. I have connected it via USB and installed it over CUPS web interface.

The printer successfully installs but I am unable to print a test page. In completed jobs it states “aborted.” When I click “restart job” it gives me this: “client-error-not-possible”

In /var/log/messages:

code:kernel: sent an invalid ICMP type 3, code 3 error to a broadcast: on eth0

I went ahead to try to share it with Samba using standard printer settings but nothing showed up.

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browsable = Yes
public = Yes
guest ok = Yes
writable = No
printable = Yes

Any ideas on what could be wrong or how to troubleshoot?
