Printing in Linux
CUPS is a client/server protocol; most people use CUPS by running a CUPS server locally and pointing their CUPS client at that local server. If you've installed CUPS in Ubuntu or another "just works" distribution, this is the default configuration. This configuration is less than ideal for use with Gates; rather than running your own local CUPS server, you should just point your CUPS client directly at the department's existing CUPS servers.
Edit your CUPS client configuration file (usually /etc/cups/client.conf), and add the line
ServerName cupsprint1.coecis.cornell.edu to the end of the file. Now, turn off your local CUPS server (usually something like
systemctl disable cups.service or
/etc/init.d/cupsd stop or
/etc/init.d/cups stop). You now have access to every COE/CIS printer.
