Hi,

You have not explained how the printer is networked. Is it connected to one of the Windows machines and set up as a share? Or, is it connected directly to a router/printserver and has its own IP address?

We need more information before we can help you. But, I advise you find out the IP address of the printer to help you set it up..

Cheers,

[edit] Although the article is for a different architecture, I think this will help you set it up

Yes - that'll help you get the configuration right. Make sure you select that it's a printer over TCP/IP when it comes up..

If Fedora doesn't have your printer's driver, you can probably get it from here
