I want to use my Epson C82 as my printer for my Mandrake 9.2 machine. I have setup samba and can access all shared items on the Windows machine. The printer is shared, but I have not been able to print to it. I used PrinterDrake to attempt to setup the Epson, but it was not able to detect the network printer. I then set it up using the ip address of the Windows machine and the default port 9100. This does not work.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks blink.gif

O.K. I have a simular problem. I have SuSE 9.0 Pro and I can not get my printer to work either. I have the printer setup on my Windows machine and all my windows computers can print to it fine. In Yast there is a nice printer setup. I can choose SMB Network and it brings up the information that I need to enter. How do I find these out? I have a Linksys router and my main machine is Is that the ip or host or what?

SMB server host
SMB server IP
Share name
