Question 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 "xxx.xxx.xx.xxx/dev/lpr -Pmy_printer_name" that I can put in the location box?
Thanks

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.

Smile Puppy Prints

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.
