I would like to configure cupsd to use no authentication on port 631 for one network interface and to use authentication and encryption on a second port for all other addresses.

Currently I have to run two cupsd instances; a normal one setup on port 631, and a second instance on another (SSLPort) port where each queue forward jobs onto the non-secure cups instance. This requires a lot of configuration overhead. (twice as many queues)

I suppose this feature is a bit like apache's virtualhosts.

Um, you should be able to use the following in CUPS 1.1.x:

<Location /foo>
Satisfy Any
Order allow,deny
Allow  # your one network
AuthType Basic
Encryption Required

If you connect from the 11.22.33 network, you are allowed without providing a password, but the connection will always be encrypted.

In CUPS 1.2, you can drop the "Encryption Required" bit and let the "DefaultEncryption" setting turn on encryption with authentication.

In short, I think we can do what you want already.
