Network Printing, CUPS, Slackware 9.1, Xante Printer
I need to print to a LPR/LocalTalk/EtherTalk/NovellPrintServer enabled printer. Its IP Adress is 18.104.22.168 . Its name is Accel-a-Writer_3G_PS. What do I put into CUPS where it says "Device?" Should I use LPR? I heard it is really old and has security flaws.
And what do I put in for "Make" if my printer company isn't listed? Is "Raw" ok? Lets assume I put in lpd://22.214.171.124/queue for the "Device URL." Would that work?
*3 secs later*
OK, just did it, doesnt work. CUPS is "Attempting to connect to host 126.96.36.199 for printer queue." And the printer is not responding.
1. Its on and plugged into ethernet.
2. My Mac (OSX, no special drivers installed) can access it
All help appreciated
EDIT: Pinging the IP adress does nothing. Literally, NOTHING happens. Just goes down a line. Is "ping 188.8.131.52" correct for linux?
