Hi, I have installed a Brother HL-2030 on Fedora 20 and turned on sharing on CUPS. On a MacBook on the same lan, I added the printer (HL-2030 @ linux), the Mac sees the printer and tries to configure it, but returns an error.

"Setting up Brother HL-2030 @ linux.." - Unable to download the software from the server at this time.

I have also tried to put manually the driver and all seems to work fine, but after I launched a print of a document, the Mac says: ..connecting to printer... ..the printer not responding...

I think something miss in Fedore to share correctly the printer. Any idea?

could be a firewall problem. CUPS uses TCP,UDP port 631 (IPP)
