cups-browsed.conf - server configuration file for cups-browsed
The cups-browsed.conf file configures the cups-browsed daemon. It is normally located in the /etc/cups directory. Each line in the file can
be a configuration directive, a blank line, or a comment. Comment lines start with the # character.
The BrowseAllow directive specifies a system or network to accept CUPS browse packets from. The default is to accept browse packets from
all hosts when BrowseRemoteProtocols uses the CUPS protocol.
The BrowsePoll directive polls a server for available printers once every 60 seconds. Multiple BrowsePoll directives can be specified to
poll multiple servers. The default port to connect to is 631. BrowsePoll works independently of whether CUPS browsing is activated in
The BrowseLocalProtocols directive specifies the protocols to use when advertising local shared printers on the network. The default is
"none". Control of advertising of local shared printers using dnssd is done in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.
The BrowseRemoteProtocols directive specifies the protocols to use when finding remote shared printers on the network. Multiple protocols
can be specified by separating them with spaces. The default is "dnssd cups".

cupsd - cups scheduler
cupsd [ -c cupsd.conf ] [ -f ] [ -F ] [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -s cups-files.conf ] [ -t ]
cupsd is the scheduler for CUPS. It implements a printing system based upon the Internet Printing Protocol, version 2.1, and supports most
of the requirements for IPP Everywhere. If no options are specified on the command-line then the default configuration file
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.
OPTIONS -c cupsd.conf
Uses the named cupsd.conf configuration file.
-f Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the background as a "daemon".
-F Run cupsd in the foreground but detach the process from the controlling terminal and current directory. This is useful for running
cupsd from init(8).
-h Shows the program usage.
-l This option is passed to cupsd when it is run from launchd(8) or systemd(8).
Uses the named cups-files.conf configuration file.
-t Test the configuration file for syntax errors.
cupsd implements all of the required IPP/2.1 attributes and operations. It also implements several CUPS-specific administrative operations.
Run cupsd in the background with the default configuration file:
Test a configuration file called test.conf:
cupsd -t -c test.conf
Run cupsd in the foreground with a test configuration file called test.conf:
cupsd -f -c test.conf
