Netgear Print Servers and Linux

Hi all.

Just wondering the easiest way to send a print to a printer on a Netgear Print Server (or any other print server) in Linux.

The print servers IP address is and the queue name is P1.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Seems like Cups is the easiest way to go. It does a good job of finding printer devices -- reporting my officejet (connected via a jetdirect) as Appsocket/JetDirect and as a ptal device. But I've managed to get the printer to work, as a printer and a scanner, by following the CUPS setup. Of course, I'm also using Debian -- testing. That is mostly testing. I've had vaarious combinations of stable, testing and unstable, over time. The only trouble I've had worth mentioning, was during a brief period that the maintainer for mozilla had changed the install script so that using xprint was required.
