Hi all,

I am rather new to GuixSD and don't have much experience with GNU/Linux printing, so please bear with me.

Trying to set up my Brother HL-3170CDW series printer over the network I found some useful messages on this list, especially the example system configuration at
which I took as a reference when extending my own config file.

I got the CUPS web GUI working, which detects the printer in the Add Printer dialog, with a Connection setting of dnssd://Brother%20HL-3170CDW%20series._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e3248000-80ce-11db-8000-001ba9fa9f52

When trying to print a test page, the State column on the printer's page's Jobs section becomes "Unable to locate printer "BRN001BA9FA9F52.local"."

On another system running Xubuntu 18.04, I can successfully print on the same printer using a different connection, namely

So I set up another printer in the GuixSD's CUPS GUI with the same connection, but unfortunately it keeps giving me the same error when I attempt to print a test page.

Any help with fixing or debugging this further would be much appreciated.
