Keep in mind : If this computer system ever before heads out right into the wild, where it's not concealed behind a router, it could be worth defining an IP address as opposed to wildcarding. If it rests behind a safeguarded router regularly, you do not require to bother with it.
Keep in mind 2 : If you have a firewall program working on your computer system (eg ufw, firestarter) make certain to permit links on port 631 via.
Reactivate mugs :
sudo /etc/init.d/cupsys restart
