not a networking question. moved to Desktop. and you'd use the local cups service to connect across to the shard printer. if your'e reading this on the client, try clicking for your local cups web interface, if it is configured.

i already start the cups service and enter the url and found it kinda amusing for me..

1. I login as admin
2. Click the Add Printer Button
3. Entering the Name of the Printer : "EpsonC58", Location : "smb://"
4. When it comes to DEVICE URI, I enter : "smb://"
5. Then, I was asked to choose "Model/Driver for StylusC58", so I choose Epson
6. In the model, I search foor Epson Stylus C58 but there can't find it so I choose to use the Epson Stylus C50 driver
7. Printer StylusC58 has been added successfully.

Then I try to print a test page but there is no respond at all. What went wrong actually? Thanks.
