Linuxhelp _ Hardware Support _ Hp Laser Jet 2200d In Redhat 9

Posted by: y0shi Feb 27 2004, 05:54 PM

I have a wireless network in my house ( took me for ever to get my dell truemobile nic working in linux sad.gif )... the computer "serving" the printer is running windows....the printer is HP Laser Jet 2200D

I went in and Specified the printer i wanted to use... and it found it. but it says Unable to Connect to the SAMBA host?

the sharing info is right... i have the queue type set to : Networked Windws SMB.

The driver is PostScript.... which i believe is the correct one for the LJ 2200's.

Is there something special in driver options i need to do ? I'm really lost as to why it won't work... although i am a linux nub... lol

o btw running 2.4.30-20.9 RedHat9

Any help woud be greatly appreciated!!!
