Hi again,

Just thought I'd share my experience of setting-up my MFP server (an Edimax PS1206MF) connected to my Epson Stylus RX425 printer (and Puppy v4.0 of course).

After initially (& foolishly) following the Unix section of the Edimax manual and setting up a manual printer spool and editing the /etc/printcap file, I then opted for CUPS (Menu > Set-up > CUPS Printer Wizard) using the LPD/LDR option. The only "trick" was to set the URI = socket://192.168.1.13 which isn't immediately obvious to a nube like myself.

Other than that it worked a treat... wicked!
