is it possible to use CUPS without printer? I want to send a request to another PC with CUPS, but I don't have any printer. I just want to analyze network traffic and the sent request with Wireshark (or modify with Scapy). At the second PC I will compare changes (after modifying). I don't want to print anything? Is it possible to do something like this or I must have a printer. Maybe I didn't understand CUPS well, but I think it could be possible. Thank you and sorry for my English :)
