fatbloke , greetings to somewhere in the london, essex area.. ( i think)
there are some threads on cups that you may wish to peruse
note piper post on pp1 and Swynndia post on pp6
have a read.. i took me a couple of goes to get it set,, to primt
Also , you need to set up printing on each PC,, i use the Control Centre>periphs>printers.. add printer,, it takes you through step by step,, its just a matter of which radio button you click,, 9 times out of 10 you will click the incorrect one (grin,, happens to me all the time bugger), try again,, let us know whathappens,, all else fails pop into #kanotix on IRC
Well I'm guessing, but I think it seems to be something to do with how I'm telling the system to talk to the printer.
So I'm gonna try installing the software on my partners laptop and then, in theory, I should be able to change all the IP information so that I can connect it to my network.
It might be that the damn device has various bits of windows protocols set up as default - if it works as I'm hoping, that'll all change.
I'll report back when I've finished playing.
