A friend gave me a really nice printer, an Epson Artisan 810. It
connects to my wireless router and has an IP address, and that is the
way he used to use it. He had a mac. My daughter connected to it easily
enough with her mac.

How do I connect to it in openSUSE? It has a MAC address and an IP
address, but I don't know what to do about it. I cannot tell anywhere
that it is connected by TCP socket, LPD protocol, or IPP protocol. All I
know is that it has a wireless IP address from my router, using the same
authentication as my other wireless devices, and that my daughter's
macbook connected to it easily without any messing around.

If I need to post any more information, please let me know what and
where to get the information. I am using box #1 below.

I have an 800 and have it set up as a network printer using tcp on port 9100

Go into the connection wizard within the yast printer module/choose TCP Port
and add the IP then click test connection. When you click OK then you choose
the printer driver and you are done.

If you turn off the firewall then opensuse will detect it as well
