Can not access cups interface after switching to pfsense
Hi, so I have been setting up pfsense for the past few weeks tweaking and working out bugs for my network. I just noticed I can not access my
cups interface anymore. I think it is related to squid. I tried my other linux box and it just hangs. I have tried to look at the firewall logs but I dont see anything.
Here are my running services
----squid (transparent mode)
Here is the error I get
The requested URL could not be retrieved
The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL: http://localhost:631/
Connection to ::1 failed.
The system returned: (60) Operation timed out
The remote host or network may be down. Please try the request again.
Your cache administrator is admin@localhost.

Are you using IPv6 on your network?
Well I figured out the problem (with one computer) for some reason on both computers cups-browsed.services was inactive/dead I restarted the services which now say active but only one computer can access the cups menu at this time.
The laptop still times out. Yesterday I disabled IPV6 under "System, Advanced, Networking" on the pf Server, I do not have an ipv6 address set for my pfbox and I also disabled the IPV6 stack on the two computers in the kernel. I really wish I could just build cups into pfsense. The printer is wireless.
