Subject description: Can't access networked PC
 

I have tried CUPS wizard (in frugal LUPU 528). My HP Deskjet is connected by cable to a Windows PC (call it PC1).
Puppy is on a second PC (call it PC2). PC2 is networked to PC1.
When I print from PC2 in Windows mode (i.e not in frugal Puppy), it accesses PC1 and prints. However, when I am using Puppy on PC2, and CUPS, I can't access the printer.
I can't figure out how to connect to PC1, which runs Vista, so that it will pass my file on to its printer. I have the IP address of PC2, its full name, and the make of the printer.
Any help would be appreciated.

Have you read the post directly above this one titled How to Install Your Printer/Scanner in Puppy? It contains the section titled Connecting to a Windows Shared Printer.

You will install the printer in PC2 using the smb: protocol. If you can't get it working, please report back.

Thanks for your reply, but I didn't understand what you meant by the post"above this one".
