While setting up a FreeBSD jail I decided to ask CUPS to be kind enough to listen on just the specified address:

Unfortunately, this seems to break the insides of CUPS.

I [25/Mar/2004:22:50:58 +0000] Sending browsing info to c0a87bff:631

E [25/Mar/2004:22:52:08 +0000] [CGI] CUPS-Get-Printers request failed - server-error-internal-error (500)

If I replace the Listen line with a
Port 631
line then everything works sweetly again.

You must listen for connections on the local loopback interface. You can use two listen lines:

Listen ipaddress:631
