Thanks for the suggestion but I don't intend to get
involved with Kerberos as mentioned. But i did fix it
by purging and reinstalling cupsys. I don't know how
samba got involved here but I'll check out my smb.conf
to see if any thing changed.  BTW, I've read all your
posts on setting up a network printer(ipp) and am
failing badly. There seems to be an issue with the URL
and it does everything but print. If you have the time
maybe we could talk off-list. I have an Epson Stylus
CX5800F MFP and had it installed locally once and
working. Now can't get it to work as a local usb
printer because https://localhost:632/admin add
printer doesn't have a configuration for a usb printer.
