Re: [SLE] Please help with printing on my LAN
I am having LAN printer problems as well. My troubles began when my HP
JetDirect Plus blew up and I had to connect my HP1100 via parallel port to
my "central" Linux box. I thought it would simply be a matter of mounting it
over a shared queue ("lp" for instance), but, of course, I was wrong. I was
wondering if anyone could offer a quick solution, or at least point me int
the right direction. In the meantime, I'll begin trudging back through the
Linux databases.
