The only setup options are TCP/IP on/off (plus IP, netmask, and gateway if
on) and IPX/SPX on/off (which is off).

telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

Which I guess means that the RIP is up but not running NetBIOS.

I've since found that one of them (the newer one) has some extra settings
for Windows printing (including wins address) - so that one is fixed !

I think the other one is probably the same problem, but it definitely
doesn't have the same menus.

Oh well, off to see if I can get any info from Minolta ...
