sharing printer fails: Unable to change server settings: Forbidden
 
Trying to revive sharing of my printer on my F14box,
to enable my wife's imac to print to it;

I had been doing this with no trouble, now back in some sort of limbo.


on an old thread, Sam V responded

> Yes, open http://localhost:631/admin/ and make sure that "Share printers connected to this system" and > "Allow printing from the Internet" are enabled.


I check both of the following:

Share printers connected to this system
Allow printing from the Internet

and then I click on the

Change Settings box

it responds:
Change Settings Error

Unable to change server settings:

Forbidden

is this a permissions problem ?

trying to print from the imac says
the printer is busy
and it never prints.


Advice?
Jack

Did you use root user to enter http://localhost:631/admin/ ??
