Hi, Nuno.

After upgrading to Squeeze, I tried to do a test print from a client
with Lenny and I could not connect to server. From what I see, the
server is up:

sirius:~# netstat -puta

Nice mnemonics ;)

And that I'm not using it to verify connections of tftp ;)

Have you tried localhost:631? Have you been fiddling with a firewall
(or has it been updated)?

I've recently dist-upgraded on Sid and :631 is working fine.

Roger, I forgot to copy some of the lines of the netstat output. Here's
the output with grep:

sirius:/etc/cups# netstat -puta | grep ipp
tcp 0 0 sirius.freesoftware:ipp *:* LISTEN 21266/cupsd
tcp 0 0 localhost:ipp *:* LISTEN 21266/cupsd
tcp6 0 0 ip6-localhost:ipp [::]:* LISTEN 21266/cupsd
udp 0 0 *:ipp *:* 21266/cupsd

I tried to connect to localhost:631 with links2 on the server host and I
get the CUPS interface. I also connect seamlessly to sirius:631 from
Iceweasel on the machine with KDE where I had given the message that I
mentioned earlier. But if I try to connect sirius.freesoftware:631 or
printer.freesoftware:631, I get:

400 Bad Request.

This looks like a bug [1] and it was also reported in Debian for some
time [2].

Thanks for your replies.
