To all who have read my previous posts, I am getting there! Network is up and running, and have sorted netscape and modem (use credit card rather than finding new drivers!).
Samba works for files Win to RH7, just can't get my printer to work. It's an HP deskjet 710c,which works when attached to parallel port on RH machine, but can't for the life of me get it to work via Samba from the Windows machine. It apparently uses a proprietary PPA protocol, which seems to mean the bloody thing only works on a local machine. Does anyone know how I can get it to work?
