1008In order to setup a default printer, you have to edit
1009<path>/etc/cups/client.conf</path> and set the directive
1010<c>ServerName</c> to your printserver. In the case of this guide that
1011would be the following example.

1028Some common observations when setting a default printer in this manner
1029include the following:
1030</p> 841<p>
1031 842Just point your web browser to <c>http://printserver:631</c> on the client if
1032<ul> 843you want to manage your printers and their jobs with a nice web interface.
1033 <li> 844Replace <c>printserver</c> with the name of the <e>machine</e> that acts as your
1034 Setting the <c>ServerName</c> in <path>client.conf</path> seems to 845print server, not the name you gave to the cups print server if you used
1035 work well for only one printer, there may be yet another way to 846different names.
1036 set a client's default remote printer. 847</p>
1037 </li>
1038 <li>
1039 Also, when accessing <c>http://localhost:631</c> on the client
1040 now, no printers seem to be "found" by the client-CUPS. This is to
1041 be expected when setting <c>ServerName</c> in
1042 <path>client.conf</path>.
