I have a problem with a network printer which is directly connected to
a hub. It's named "EPSON_NET" with 192.168.2.13 as IPaddress and I have
disabled NetBIOS Interface.
I managed to install it on my server (Linux RH 6.2 with Samba 2.0.6) and
the printcap file is the following :
Printings are correctly done from the server. I would like to share this
printer with a workstation connected to the network. So i modified the
smb.conf file with those lines :
comment = Julien's printer
guest ok = Yes
path = /tmp
printer = EPSON_NET
public = No
writable = Yes
printable = Yes
# print command = /usr/bin/lpr -s -PEPSON_NET
After restarting samba server, EPSON_NET was visible in network
So i installed it on the workstation and there was no problem.
I tried to print a document from the workstationand it was correctly
done except that an error window appeared, coming from "Epson
Status Monitor 3". It meant there was communication error and it
asked me to verify connections.
So what's the problem ?
Thank you for your help.
PS : excuse me for my bad english.
