Hi, Steve

It is already like you described, but no deal.
I have noticed that the URI for the auto-configured network printer is 
like ipp://w.x.y.z:631/printers/... and for some reason this is not 
If I manually configure a network printer and use the same URI but 
omitting the port (like ipp://w.x.y.z/printers/...) then it works.
However, this is a poor workaround for me, because the IP address of the 
machine where the printer is attached is dynamically configured and 
every now and then it changes, so my manually configured printer stops 
working. Besides, the auto-configured printer is still listed and not 
working, which confounds users.

Any other idea?
