   Is it possible to run more than one cups server on same host. I mean just the way we can run more than one webserver on same server? I want to run two separate cups server who has its own spooler and logs using one /etc/cups/cupsd.conf. Can i do this by defining virtual server like this?

#2nd cups server in cupsd.conf

<VirtualHost *:80>
        DocumentRoot /usr/share/doc/cups-1.1.17
        ErrorLog /var/log/cups2/error_log
        PageLog /var/log/cups2/page_log
        RequestRoot /var/spool/cups2

Will cups support it?
