FC7 and canon iR C3170 network printer


At work i have got my laptop with FC7. I tried to install our work's printer (on 192.168.2.50) , here what I did :

Through GUI, System-->Administration-->Printing--> New Printer ,,,,but i do not what to choos to assign TCP/IP port to the FC7 PC.

What option should I choose :

Windows Printer via SAMBA
AppSocket/HP JetDirect
Internet Printing Protocol
LPD/LPR Host or Printer
Other

Any help how to setup the printer.

Do i need to use command line or still I can do through GUI

I used to install other network printer on FC4, FC5

If I could not find the proper driver for our canon printer iR C3170.

Do I need to install one ? or the generic Linux one does the job.

Regards

I've looked up the printer on the internet and it supports all of the above protocols, I would choose the hp jetdirect driver I am not sure if it's the best driver but it's the easiest to configure, you only need to supple the hostname (ip address). In case you can't find the exact canon type pick the closest one it usually works. U could use the IR 3100C driver: http://openprinting.org/show_printer...Canon-iR_3100C

I tried hp jetdirect driver, but I could not find IR 3100C driver under that option.
