Im having a little problem setting up my printer. im running redhat 9 and this is what i have done so far
went to ControlCenter =>Peripherals=>Printers=> selected CUPS, then clikced on administrator mode typed my root password. Then I seleted add a printer and followed the printer wizard. Chose the network printer w/ IPP (IPP/HTTP), then i typed the printer URI /HOME/USER/Printer etc,
when the set up is done i print "test page" but nothing happens. when i look at information it says "Processing (accepting job) but it doesnt work.
does anyone have an idea as to what im doing wrong?
any advise will be appreciated
i doubt it, but then again im a newbie so the posibility exists. i found a thread about setting up a printer and followed what it said. can you elaborate more on socket://<printers_ip:9100> im not too familiar wiht linux and i want to be able to print so i can migrate to linux. thanks in advance
Since I have no idea which thread you found and followed
it's hard for me to give sensible advice. I'd suggest to have
a try using the web-interface (point a browser a http://localhost:631) and tackle it from there ... go to
manage printers. If your printer is there, check the connection
type by looking at its settings in "Modify Printer"
hey tinkster, thanks for replying, to answer your question, yes my printer is dangling from a windows box. reason why i bring up samba is because im not able to view the shared docs on the xp machine. after typing smbclient -L SERVER i get the following the message which seems to be working correctly
added interface ip=192.168.0.103 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Got a positive name query response from 192.168.0.101 ( 192.168.0.101 )
after pressing Enter to bypass the password prompt ,
Domain=[HOME] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
