I have 4 computers running Mandrake 9.1 that I would like to access an HP LaserJet printer with. I have a generic printserver (it has no markings, but says its compatible with linux. I have a manual, but I can't seem to find out what company made the printserver) set up on the printer. I know the ip, and everything that I would need to set it up, but I have no idea how to set up the computers to access the printer under linux.
There are two windows workstations that use the printserver, so I know that it functions. I've tried using the web access (http://localhost:631
), but I haven't had any luck with this particular printer (although i did get it to print off another printserver [hp jetdirect printserver] in another room by accident
Any ideas? Should I just toss the generic printserver, and get another jet direct like the one i accidentally got to work? Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide!
