 Cups configuration
Author: DavidMath

i'm trying to configure CUPs under freebsd like it said in, and
when i try to access

links http://localhost:631/admin

the answer is: "unauthorized" "this server could not verify that you're authorized to access the resource"

and with opera (in my workstation) i can acess, anyone know why i cant access it with links, and what i have to do to access it (i dont want to put X in the server only to access the url, because links doesnt work) :(

No need to install X. I am having the same problem using an X browser (Konqueror).

I had this same issue the last time I installed FreeBSD, and I found a web discussion saying that the CUPS port somehow forgot to create a few directories and maybe one of them had wrong permissions --I can't remember exactly.

I followed the workaround instructions (creating the directories) and it worked most of the time.

Now I can't find the instructions to get it working again. It was a month ago or more, so maybe the port is fixed by now?
