I have several network printers at work and at home I'd like to access in a Windows XP guest, under a Xubuntu 12.04 host. I have networking set to NAT, since I take my laptop back and forth to work and the IP address changes every day.

I've tried these instructions, but my CUPS error log has the following line:

Request from "localhost" using invalid Host: field ""

Is there something simple I'm doing wrong?
