How do I get my Suse 9.1 box to print to the printer attached to my Win XP box?


Here's what I have

1. Win XP box that has an Epson C64 attached via USB
2. Suse 9.1 box with no printer

Both computers are connected to a Netgear RP614v2 router and can access the internet.

How do I print from my Linux box to my Win XP box?

I have the Win XP box set up for printer sharing and (I think) I have the Unix drivers loaded correctly.

What next?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go to Google and search for your printer manufacterer's site or other sites for Linux drivers. I hope you'll get it. I got one for my HP printer, and after I followed the instructions my SuSE 9 autodetected the USB printer, something never mentioned in the instructions! Honestly, I didn't expect it.
