Okay, I've been trying to set up a print share hosted by my linux machine over an apple network. I found instructions on how to do it at http://software.newsforge.com/articl...&tid=6&tid=138
. However, this site doesn't tell you which ip address to use.
When I typed "ifconfig" in Konsole, I got this:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50: DA:08:AE:18
inet addr:10.0.1.4 Bcast:255.255.255.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

I tried both 10.0.1.4 and 127.0.0.1 and the Mac still won't print to the printer on the linux machine. then I went to https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2
and got 184.108.40.206 as my public IP Address. It didn't work either. If I'm using the wrong string of numbers, then which one should I use?
The only other reason I can think of that this doesn't work is that port 631 isn't open in the firewall.
