Network Printing
How does one connect to a network printer with Puppy? With Knoppix (I'm using Kanotix live CD as I type) You just search your network, but Puppy only offers local printer options as far as I can tell. I want to use the printer attached to my Kanotix machine. I know it's address. I know it's name (lpstat -a) but is there something along the line of " -Pmy_printer_name" that I can put in the location box?

No guarantees but something here might help:

Thanks. They look promising. I'll give them a try.

Use the printer wizard to set up your printer. When you start the setup with xpdq, select bsd-lpd as the interface. Then you can put in the IP address and the queue name.

just set up printing on the printer down the hall. running off a USB Jump disk at work. Works great. On the net and completly bypassing the company system. Used an unused terminal address to set up my terminal.
