Unhappy Brother MFC 9600 networked printer - am completely lost


Hi Im recently new to Mandrake 10.1 community and I cant seem to grasp networked printing, so as of yet im having to email myself and print it using my brothers windows machine! I know alot about computing but not enough to seem to figure this whole precedure out. Does anyone have a solution that doesnt include a 60 page manual? The specs are a Brother MFC 9600 and it has partial compatibility I am told.

Yours Waiting

Hi david.miko, welcome to lq. Is the printer in question attached to the linux machine or the windows box?
good luck.

The printer is on a network router which supports a print server and the printer device is known as lp1 and supports unix clients
