	Probably at some point before all this, fiddling with CUPS, I 
tried an add button.

	I've just gone through them again. Every machine has every box 
checked, except the one for Kerberos and the one for cancelling other 
people's jobs.

	The one I had as default did OK, and the other didn't print, nor 
even make printer noises; I deleted it.

	I.e., delete down to the best setting, I take it.

	I'm on #2 at the moment. Neither one printed anything! And the 
result was the same on #3 and #4.

	I tried that again this morning. No joy. If I type 
http://192.168.x.y:631/admin into firefox on 192.168.x.z, I get a 503 
from privoxy : connect failed.

	I tried googling ipp to see if the problem were a misapprehension 
about that -- and couldn't make head nor tail of what I found.
