Install and manage the CUPS server with New Book from Packt.
Packt is pleased to announce a new book on the Commmon Unix Printing System
that teaches to monitor and secure the CUPS server. Written by Ankur Shah,
CUPS Administrative Guide will show users to manage printers through the
command line and web interface.
The Common Unix Printing System (CUPS) is a modular printing system for
Unix-like computer operating systems that allows a computer to act as a
print server. It consists of a print spooler and scheduler, filters to
convert print jobs to the format required by each printer, and a backend
system to send the data to the chosen printer from client applications. By
providing a portable, modular printing layer, CUPS brings printing for UNIX
into the modern age.
This book introduces system administrators to the unique and powerful
features of CUPS, and then moves on to installing, compiling and managing
the print network. System administrators will learn how to integrate their
systems with other systems like LPDs and Mac, manage the ever increasing
print job load, set up clients, and manage users.
CUPS Administrative Guide will teach administrators to customize the status
of their printer system to accept and reject print jobs, set different
print options, print multiple copies, configure manual and automatic print
queues, and communicate with single and multiple servers with
clients. Users will also learn the importance of cupsd.conf directives that
will help them manage their network, server, browsing, and security
Linux/Unix System Administrators who want to know about the CUPS server and
who are interested in designing and setting up a CUPS network will find
this book useful. This book is out now and is available from Packt. For
