Subject description: (SOLVED)
 

Puppy Precise 5.7.1

I'm using Puppy Precise , but I need to use an Windows XP printer located at my network .
How could I do it ? I've tried to add a printer with Windows Wizard adding different paths but no luck , like :
-http://localhost:631/printers/Canon_iP2700_series
-192.168.1.200:631/printers/Canon_iP2700_series
-http://192.168.1.200:631/printers/Canon_iP2700_series

Just to be clear, you want to print FROM a Puppy machine TO a printer on a Windows machine. Because your examples appear to be going the other way.

Your source for information about printing in Puppy is here. It has section on connecting to a Windows shared printer.

Please report back.

Then you need to follow the steps for sharing a Puppy printer. Note that there are TWO steps in CUPS.

Once you have done that correctly, your URL in the Windows printer setup looks OK.

Code:
http://192.168.1.200:631/printers/Canon_iP2700_series

I could only find one way . The way I've tried was :
Opened Cups 1.4.8 > Administration TAB and thick the following option :
-Show printers shared by other systems
Protocols: CUPS
-Share printers connected to this system
Max clients:
Protocols: CUPS

But still , Windows Xp cannot detect or find the printer .

Please go here again and read the section titled "Sharing your Puppy Printer with Other Windows or Linux Machines".

Quote:
(CUPS 1.4.x) When you install a printer, there is a check box for Sharing. If you have not already set it, run the Modify Printer procedure.

I own an iP2700, so I set it up as shared printer in Precise 571 and successfully used it from an XP machine.

1. Is 192.168.1.200 the IP address of the Puppy machine?

2. If it is, the correct URI is
Code:
http://192.168.1.200:631/printers/Canon_iP2700_series

Note the http:// at the beginning and the : colon in the middle.

I tested this with another XP machine and it worked again.

I had tested with http:// before , but no luck . It still giving that message that cannot connect with printer .
thats weird , it should be working , specially because today , I finally could instal Samba-TNG , and finally I can see shared files from Win XP to Puppy , But , unfortunatly , this problem with shared printer still persists .

In the CUPS Admin > Server section, have you checked "Share printers connected to this computer"?

Is your XP machine running a security package like Norton that might be blocking this?
