973That should be it. Nothing else will be needed. Just point your web

980</p> 1025<p>
1026If you use only one printer, it will be your default printer. If your print
1027server manages several printers, your administrator will have defined a default
1028printer on the server. If you want to define a different default printer for
1029yourself, use the <c>lpoptions</c> command.

988In order to setup a default printer, you have to edit
989<path>/etc/cups/client.conf</path> and set the directive
990<c>ServerName</c> to your printserver. In the case of this guide that
991would be the following example.
992</p>
993
994<pre caption="/etc/cups/client.conf">
995ServerName PrintServer
996</pre>
997
998<p>

1000server.

1006 1048
1007<p>
1008Some common observations when setting a default printer in this manner
1009include the following:
1010</p> 1049<p>
1011 1050Just point your web browser to <c>http://printserver:631</c> on the client if
1012<ul> 1051you want to manage your printers and their jobs with a nice web interface.
1013 <li> 1052Replace <c>printserver</c> with the name of the <e>machine</e> that acts as
1014 Setting the <c>ServerName</c> in <path>client.conf</path> seems to 1053your print server, not the name you gave to the cups print server if you used
1015 work well for only one printer, there may be yet another way to 1054different names.
1016 set a client's default remote printer. 1055</p>
1017 </li>
1018 <li>
1019 Also, when accessing <c>http://localhost:631</c> on the client
1020 now, no printers seem to be "found" by the client-CUPS. This is to
1021 be expected when setting <c>ServerName</c> in
1022 <path>client.conf</path>.
