[Techtalk] Cups Web administration acting weird...

I have a problem with this one server where the Cups Web administration
doesn't work, and I don't know WHY. It's driving me batty.
If I got to server.domain:631 I can see all the menu pages and things,
but when I click "start printer" it says I'm not authorized. Normally,
and on all other servers I have running, clicking "start server" brings
up a dialog to put in login and password at that point. Only this one
server doesn't ask for a login and locks me out without any option.
So, that doesn't work and I try a different route... Webmin, right? I
get to the printer management stuff on Webmin, click "start printer" and
Webmin claims that the printer is now started, but guess what? It isn't.
It still won't print and a quick poke into a console window to see lpq
shows that the printer is stopped. WHY??!!! Grrrr...
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks...
