Ok... So, I'll be dumb for a minute. I've downloaded the .pets for the Epson series printers, I've installed it. I still can't get CUPS to register my network printer? I've gone through all the CLI stuff trying to get it, but it still doesn't read it when I go to set it up.


Edit: However, I can access the Network Administration page of the printer. It is connected to my network via wireless.

What Puppy are you using? Are you running a firewall?

When you run Add Printer or Find New Printers, does CUPS detect the device? You may have to run Find New Printers several times.

If not, many Epson printers use the network "socket" protocol. So you can run "Add Printer" and manually enter the URI as "socket://aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd".

What do you mean?

Go to the command line and type:
Code:
mpscan -p 9100 aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd

What do you get back?

Code:
# mpscan -p 9100 192.168.1.103
ip: 192.168.1.103 9100 OK


No. Cups doesn't register the device at all.

Running Slacko 5.3.3.

In that case, run Add Printer and select AppSocket/JetDirect

Enter the URI as
Code:
socket://192.168.1.103

Ok... You're a genius... I'm obviously not. Thanks so much! Very Happy

It's working, now, thanks to you.

Excellent. I don't know why CUPS has trouble auto-detecting some network printers. The old CUPS 1.3.11 was much better at this.

For network scanning, read here.
