Using the printer server in the Dlink 704 ane 707 series routers.


there have been many questions about configuring Debian to use the print server on the DLINK y04 and 707 series of routers....the following works using the debian install for cups...

You don't need to know the hostname. Logon to http://localhost:631/
Then just select the device 'LPD/LPR Host or Printer'. Then put the following as the device URL.

lpd://192.168.0.1/lp

Configure your driver, done.

Dlink does not support linux but the above works perfectly on Etch

I just wanted to thank you for this post. It helped me get my printing setup finally using a Linksys USB network print server. The key thing to remember with this little thing is that the LPR port on it is called "P1".

I guess one thing to watch out, at least for US residents, is that by default CUPS uses paper of size A4, which is the European standard. This threw me for a second when I printed out a test page, until I saw that it was set to A4.
