Posted by monk on May 03 2006,21:17Have anyone an idea about how I get to print on our network printerserver ?
Our printer is a canon LBP1000
printerserver is hp jetdirect 500x
Network standard IP
I have tried (and tried) and is about to give up
Posted by dtf on May 03 2006,21:36I was able to get a printer working on a gigafast print server. These are
inexpensive small servers that connect to the printer using usb cable and to the
network with an ethernet connection. I could not get this to work using the
aspfilter base package
for installing printers on DSL. Instead I used MyDSL to install the cups.dsl extension.
If you want to pursue this we should move the discussion to the MyDSL Apps
forum as requested by the morderators.

I didnt have any trouble printing to that exact same print server with the exact same canon printer.
unfortunately i used Yast CUPs configuration tool
here are the settings you will need
TCP IP (Direct Network Prining)
enter the IP address of you print server
Printer on parallel port 1
Printer on parallel port 2
Printer on parallel port 3
Then select the Printer driver canon LPB-1000
(dont fall for what i did and look for Print server Drivers its just a router.)

/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p LaserJet -E -v socket://188.8.131.52 -m
Replace LaserJet with Deskjet, replace socket # with your printserver address, and laserjet.ppd with Deskjet.ppd
Then go back to CUPS and find driver for your printer.
I can print a test page, but thats all. No app will print. Still looking around
