That's either really golden or completely lame as I'm guessing at your topography.
No problem that end. I'm actually trying to get mDns scanning (using a part of jmdns) into my print app and while I have some Android bits I need to get my head round, etc. kubuntu (and the web :631) interface is working for my needs.
Just wondering what someone needing the graphical interface might do.
OpenSuse (my usual distro) btw has so far stuck with the 1.5.x versions of cups and is pre the sort of "bonjour" switch.
(Network is mostly wired with static IP, a couple of access points (I live in an L shaped bungalow and can't find a mid point that works with just one) provide wireless for the mobile devices. My regular cups server is the "always on" PC I think I mentioned in a previous post.
