Hi,

I having been having some trouble getting my print server running on Ubuntu 12.04 Server 64 inside VMware Fusion over Lion to be picked up by the rest of my home network. I installed Cups and Avahi and setup my local printers to use the Airprint protocals such that Lion OSX can see those printers. I even configured VMware Fusion Nat.conf file to do port forwarding such that I can go into Cups printer configuration on OSX from localhost:631and manually typing its ip address from another computer or ipad on the network but any Ios devices that I have connected to the network do not see any Airprint Printers even though OSX does see them. Maybe I have to set Cups to listen to the ip address of the routers gateway or its a firewall problem?

Confused..

Thanks.
