When I start with print wizard unencrypted, all input gets lost when web interface switches to encrypted #1592
If I allow remote administration on a CUPS server and start the server's web interface with
from a remote machine, then click the "Administration" tab and start adding a new printer by clicking one of the "Add printer" (manual setup) or "Add this printer" (automatic setup of auto-detected printer) I get into the Add Printer Wizard and all data is entered unencrypted (still on "http://..."). In the end, when the queue gets actually added, CUPS switches to SSL and shows an "Upgrade required" message, but instead of then being asked for the password in SSL mode, I get directed to
and have to do all steps of the Add Printer Wizard again, this time in SSL mode.
What I expect:
make the web interface auto-upgrading to SSL before the wizard begins
let it auto-upgrading to the step where I am (which would mean that in the end of the wizard the "Upgrade required" message appears and then the password dialog fires up and after entering the password I get confirmation that the queue is set up).
I prefer the first of the two, as if the URI contains a password (eg: smb://user:password@winserver/share/) the whole wizard always running in SSL mode protects the password in the URI.
