The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
New cups packages are available for Slackware 12.0, and -current to
fix security issues. The change from CUPS 1.2.x to CUPS 1.3.x was
tested here, but if you're on a completely secured internal network
these issues may be less of a risk than upgrading. If your IPP port is
open to the internet, you'd be advised to upgrade as soon as possible
(or firewall the port at the gateway if you're not in need of printer
jobs coming in from the internet).
