Impossible to add a remote printer on Fedora20?

+1 vote

I was able to print from any remote computer in F20, now when I try to print I get socket not connected.I deleted and re-installed remote printer but when I try to print a test page it says that printer is not connected.

Network printing is a nightmare for me, sorry to say...

it seems that the solution is to check ipp and ipp-client in Firewall zones, not so obvious when you have done a standard installation of Fedora-Workstation (or in my case un upgrade of F20 where everything was fine). I still think that Firewalld settings should be adjusted by system when a printer is shared (as they were in F20 in my home zone in F20)

If printer is connected through LAN then we can see it through "control panel > Devices and Printer."

But what about the wireless printer?

I am using Fedora 20 on two computers and I have also one computer that use Windows 8.

I wont realize a local network with these computers, but I am a little confused about the way to arrange my (client server) network configuration .

I understood that DHCP is the core to do the network configuration, but I have some doubts about how I have to arrange it.

Reading the documentation, I got the opinion that nothing need to do in the computers that have the role of Clients on the net; instead on the computer with the role of Server it need to write the file /etc/dhcpd.conf.

That is exact ?

What other important operation need to do to do because my local network works correctly?

It exists a good PRACTICAL tutorial to accomplish this task?

I want to do getpeername() on stdin. I know I can do this by wrapping a socket object around stdin, with

s = socket.fromfd(sys.stdin.fileno(), family, type)

but that requires that I know what the family and type are. What I want to do is discover the family and type by looking at what getpeername() and/or getsockname() return. Can this be done with the standard library?
