Hello ALL :
I figure you may have some insight into this. I have no clue and am at a loss.
What am I doing wrong with cups ?

Dear CUPS :
I am following along in http://www.cups.org/doc-1.1/sam.html and
I get to the stage where I need to add my first printer I get strange
I have cups version 1.1.23 as well as samba 3.0.20
I have an HP8000 printer at ip address 192.168.35.79 and I
confirmed that it is listening on port 9100 .
lpinfo reports this :
bash-3.00# /opt/csw/sbin/lpinfo -v
I also know that my server is running cups and that something is
listening on port 631.
I have the following file :
bash-3.00# ls -lap /opt/csw/share/cups/model/laserjet.ppd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root bin 9453 Jan 16 2005
And this is what lpadmin tells me :
bash-3.00# /opt/csw/sbin/lpadmin -p hp8000 -E -v
socket://192.168.35.79:9100 -m /opt/csw/share/cups/model/laserjet.ppd
lpadmin: add-printer (set model) failed: server-error-internal-error
Any ideas ?
