Hi Charles, hi Marek,

I've had the same problems some weeks ago. Obviously you're printing 
with CUPS, aren't you?

In CUPS network printing is disabled by default. I read how to solve it 
in a special issue of a german pc-magazine (chip-professionell - debian 
issue, p. 61):


sudo gedit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf

# go to line (section security options/ location)

# enter below the line

Allow From

# another line (example)

Allow From 10.0.0.*      #enter your individual network

Hope that helps
