[opensuse] samsung unified driver configurator and network printer?

as a followup to my earlier post (which turned out not to be that
hard after all), now i'm trying to figure out how to add a *network*
printer to my SLES 11 system -- again, the same samsung scx-4826fn
multifunction printer (MFP).

from the CD that comes with the printer, i simply ran the linux
install script, and i got the samsung unified driver configurator
installed on the desktop via USB. it works just fine, installed the
MFP, printed the test page, and so on. sweet.

now i want to add the printer to the network as well since it has a
network port. i plugged the printer into the net, then checked the
DHCP leases on the router and, sure enough, a new lease. pinged that
IP address, it responded and i verified it's the printer
(192.168.1.177).

but when i run the samsung utility, and search for network printers,
none are found. if i try to add that net printer thru yast2, yast
doesn't see it on the net. should it?

i also see from the specs that it doesn't support IPP so i'm stuck
with LPD, i guess i can try to configure it manually and see what
happens.

thoughts? advice? and i'm assuming i can have the same printer
connected both via usb and on the net, yes?

rday

p.s. ok, that seemed to work being done manually by using the URI
lpd://192.168.1.177/scx. but shouldn't i have expected yast2 printer
configuration to have detected that printer? or am i expecting too
much of printer configuration?
