       cups-browsed.conf - server configuration file for cups-browsed

       The  cups-browsed.conf  file  configures the cups-browsed daemon. It is
       normally located in the /etc/cups directory. Each line in the file  can
       be a configuration directive, a blank line, or a comment. Comment lines
       start with the # character.

       The BrowseAllow directive specifies a system or network to accept  CUPS
       browse  packets	from. The default is to accept browse packets from all
       hosts when BrowseRemoteProtocols uses the CUPS protocol.


       The BrowsePoll directive polls a server	for  available	printers  once
       every  60  seconds.  Multiple BrowsePoll directives can be specified to
       poll multiple servers. The default port to connect to is 631.   Browse‐
       Poll  works  independently  of  whether	CUPS  browsing is activated in


       The BrowseLocalProtocols directive specifies the protocols to use  when
       advertising  local  shared  printers  on	 the  network.	The default is
       "none". Control of advertising of local shared printers using dnssd  is
       done in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

	       BrowseLocalProtocols none
	       BrowseLocalProtocols CUPS

       The BrowseRemoteProtocols directive specifies the protocols to use when
       finding remote shared printers on the network. Multiple	protocols  can
       be  specified  by  separating  them with spaces.	 The default is "dnssd

	       BrowseRemoteProtocols none
	       BrowseRemoteProtocols CUPS dnssd
	       BrowseRemoteProtocols CUPS
	       BrowseRemoteProtocols dnssd

       The BrowseProtocols directive specifies the protocols to use when find‐
       ing  remote shared printers on the network and advertising local shared
       printers. "dnssd" is ignored for BrowseLocalProtocols. Multiple	proto‐
       cols  can  be  specified by separating them with spaces. The default is
       "none" for BrowseLocalProtocols and "dnssd cups" for BrowseRemoteProto‐

	       BrowseProtocols none
	       BrowseProtocols CUPS dnssd
	       BrowseProtocols CUPS
	       BrowseProtocols dnssd

       The  DomainSocket  directive  specifies the domain socket through which
       the locally running CUPS daemon is accessed. If not specified the stan‐
       dard  domain  socket of CUPS is used. Use this if you have specified an
       alternative  domain  socket  for	 CUPS  via  a  Listen	directive   in
       /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.  If  cups-browsed is not able to access the local
       CUPS daemon via a domain socket it accesses it via localhost.

	       DomainSocket /var/run/cups/cups.sock

       The CreateIPPPrinterQueues  directive  specifies	 whether  cups-browsed
       should  discover	 IPP  printers	(via Bonjour) and if they understand a
       known page description language (PWG Raster, PDF, PostScript,  PCL  XL,
       PCL  5c/e)  create  PPD-less  print  queues (using a System V interface
       script to control the filter chain). Clients have to IPP-poll the capa‐
       bilities	 of  the  printer  and	send  option  settings as standard IPP
       attributes. We do not poll the capabilities by ourselves to not wake up
       the  printer from power-saving mode when creating the queues. Jobs have
       to be sent in PDF format. Other formats are not	accepted.  This	 func‐
       tionality  is  primarily	 for mobile devices running CUPS to not need a
       printer setup tool nor a collection of printer drivers and PPDs.

	       CreateIPPPrinterQueues Yes

       The AutoShutdown directive specifies whether cups-browsed should	 auto‐
       matically  terminate when it has no local raw queues set up pointing to
       any discovered remote printers (auto shutdown mode). Setting it to "On"
       activates  the  auto-shutdown mode, setting it to "Off" deactiivates it
       (the default). The special mode "avahi" turns auto shutdown  off	 while
       avahi-daemon  is	 running  and  on when avahi-daemon stops. This allows
       running cups-browsed on-demand when avahi-daemon is run on-demand.

	       AutoShutdown Off
	       AutoShutdown On
	       AutoShutdown avahi

       The AutoShutdownTimeout directive  specifies  after  how	 many  seconds
       without	local  raw  queues  set	 up  pointing to any discovered remote
       printers cups-browsed should actually shut down in auto shutdown	 mode.
       Default is 30 seconds, 0 means immediate shutdown.

	       AutoShutdownTimeout 20
