Default Can't connect to CUPS server -- solved
I installed PC-BSD two days ago on a laptop. I am now trying to get CUPS to work but am unable to connect to the server. Immediately after the install as I was exploring the system I was able to connect to the CUPS server using Konqueror and http://localhost:631. Since my printers are connected to my Linux box and I didn't have wireless working at the time, I quit the CUPS page without changes. I now have wireless working and am trying to configure CUPS but I am unable to connect to the server. cupsd is running. This is the tail of /var/log/cups/error-log representing the last restart of cupsd.

When I try to connect to Konqueror returns FORBIDDEN

laptop# ls /var/db/pkg | grep cups

laptop# pgrep cupsd

laptop# sockstat | grep cups
root cupsd 1313 2 tcp6 *:631 *:*
root cupsd 1313 3 tcp4 *:631 *:*
root cupsd 1313 4 udp4 *:631 *:

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Edit: Problem was no configuration for lo0 so connection to localhost was not possible. Found the solution in this forum. Thanks.
