am installed base_report_to_printer and installed cups too..in localhost direct printing is working perfectly.but in hosted server printer not detected .My questions 

What is the configuration for detect printer in server?

Is there any other library  like cups needed for this?

in localhost printer detected automatically..Then why the same code not working in server?

How to solve this?

Is there any other configurations needed for the local system for printing?

Have you been into Settings->Printer->Update Printer from CUPS in Odoo? This should pickup your printers from CUPS. You can then set defaults at the report level and the user level to define whether to send to printer or to client. You also need to give the user the correct privileges to print from the user preferences in settings.
