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 got SuSE to where I choose SMB shared printer(windows). I press next. It then asks for User Identification on the next screen. I choose Guest Account or do I choose to enter in username/password? I did the later and entered in my username/password and then pressed Next. Now is where I get confused. It now asks for Workgroup, Server, and Printer. I can do a scan and it sees my workgroup(which is named workgroup) and it sees my windows machine but does not show the printer. It just give my Thomas-46l36f74 machine name. What do I put in the Workgroup, Server, and Printer fields?
