so my old notebook works now with DSL as a hdd install.
I've been connected to the internet via a dsl-router. There is another PC connected with the router and of course I can ping the ip address.
The other PC works with Ubuntu 5.04 Hoary and there is a Canon S750 printer connected, which works fine with turbo print.
What should I do, if I want to use the printer also with DSL over my small network?
Posted by Joe Shmo on July 21 2008,17:39Hey,
it is me once again. Now I have another PC in my network over the router - also with DSL on it. Still the same question, how can I use the printer on my ubuntu. Meanwhile the Ubuntu is on 7.10 and the printer is a Brother Laser HL-2030.
It is no problem to print on it from a laptop with WindowsXP like it is described here: < http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Windows_Netzwerkdrucker > - (sorry, some German)
So what about DSL?
Posted by curaga on July 21 2008,17:53You might want to try the cups extension..
Posted by Juanito on July 21 2008,18:02You don't say if the printer is connected to the dsl machines or to the ubuntu machine...
You can use the dsl cups extensions to share the printer connected to a dsl machine and you could also use cups on the ubuntu machine to share the printer with the dsl machines. I use the dsl cups extension to share a printer with other dsl machines and windows machines
Posted by Joe Shmo on July 22 2008,06:32Sorry, the printer is connected to the ubuntu machine and cups is installed there.
What should I do on DSL to print: install dsl cups extensions or it is not necessary and there is a much more easier way to use the printer?
Posted by Juanito on July 22 2008,06:47I believe you will need to install one of the dsl cups extensions on the dsl machines to be able to print from them.
If you are speaking of a simple home network without security issues, you can configure cups on the ubuntu machine to allow the dsl machines to print without requiring a password, etc.
