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.

1008Some common observations when setting a default printer in this manner

1011 1017Just point your web browser to <c>http://printserver:631</c> on the client if
1012<ul> 1018you want to manage your printers and their jobs with a nice web interface.

1015 work well for only one printer, there may be yet another way to 1021different names.
1016 set a client's default remote printer. 1022</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
