Cups printers stop routinely
Posted on 2006-06-27
Good afternoon experts:
I'm using Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS as our fax server running the Hylafax software. I'm having absolutely no problems with sending or receiving of faxes, but it seems after 6 days, the printer I have setup to print incoming faxes stops. If I attempt to restart CUPS, it won't restart so I'm forced to reboot the machine until the end of the next 6 day period. I'm also emailing a copy of the fax using the faxrcvd script and this operation continues to work even if the printer stops responding. When I inspect the printers using webmin, all it shows is a button to add a new printer [until the computer is rebooted].
I'm not even sure where to start looking, so any help would be appreciated.
