Ahhh…. The soothing sounds of Lovage.. =)
Thanks to you! That track even made it onto the holiday CD this year. We both love Lovage. Recommendations on the same lines welcome ;)
You don’t have to enable printer sharing. It’s available all the time. (For example, I don’t have printer sharing enabled and never have, but I have the CUPS http interface.) Perhaps if you enable sharing it reconfigures the firewall to allow inbound connections? *shrug* I haven’t checked to see if mine can be connected to from off of my machine, but I use it all the time locally.
Well now this is weird – on my machine, the CUPS UI is there whether sharing is enabled or not. But on Amy’s machine, it’s only available if Printer Sharing is enabled.
I do have Apache running on my box. Do you?
No, I don’t have Apache running here.
I don’t know what to make of that. Jaguar?
