PostPosted: Wed 18 Aug 2010, 09:02    Post subject: Printer sharing  

rcrsn51,

Thanks for the prompt tips but I'd already tried those settings and more, to no avail. For good measure I tried "allow internet printing" and a few more also. I'm wondering about wireless driver compatibilities--both computers are using wireless interfaces and the netbook is using NDISwrapper. Maybe I should play with Samba shares this weekend? August weather in Arizona isn't conducive to fishing.

Hmmm, just looked at this post and discovered that it doesn't make much sense out of context. What I'm talking about is an inability to share a printer between a desktop running 5.1 and a netbook running 5.0.9, both connected to a Belkin router through wireless interfaces. I have both computers set to share printers through the CUPS web interface. It's a minor bug but annoying.

@kevin bowers: I just tested your printer configuration and it does work. Machine A has Lupu 5.10 with an attached printer. It is declared sharable (both settings). Machine B has Lupu 5.10. It can see Machine A's printer. This is over a wired network but that shouldn't make any difference.

[Edit] I just checked this with a wireless laptop running Quirky and it could also see the Lupu printer. Is this an issue with your router blocking port 631?

[Edit] Can you ping the desktop computer from the laptop?

rcrsn51,

I don't know how to ping another computer.

At this writing I am at work connected to a Windows network through an Actiontek router and the netbook does not see the network printer. I don't know if CUPS is configured to see Windows printers or no?

Maybe a problem with the netbook NDISwrapper? Or the fact thet it's running 5.0.9?

Go to the desktop machine and get its IP address with the command
Code:
ifconfig

Go to the netbook and type the command
Code:
ping aaa.bbb.cc.dd

If this is a standalone networked printer, it depends on what protocol it is using to advertise itself. If it is connected to a desktop machine and declared as a Windows shared printer, CUPS does not automatically detect it. You have to install it manually using the smb: protocol.

After the installation of Nvidia 96 driver the menu button disappears and the right click menu is shorter. There are no shutdown entries. If I try to reboot from console the system hangs up. All windows are surrounded in red color.

New booting of system doesn't help.

I have asked about this in the past as well.

Example: Abiword is clutter in my installs as I always install OpenOffice and have Geany and the other smaller editors for smaller tasks. Puppy Package Manager does not present Abiword as an installed app which I may uninstall.

WDYT?

If you have set up a firewall using the default (quick with no questions), it will interfere with printer sharing.
As to accessing printers connected to a Windows printer, I have had to set up a specific ip address for each printer to get that to work.

What is the best way to uninstall the Default Firewall or to disable the settings that interfere with shared printers?

It sounds as though that feature needs a large warning re. the interference with shared printers as it could be the reason many of us had printer troubles over the past couple of months.

A different driver my work better.
Try this method to install Nvidia drivers.

There is no firewall running by default. Did you install the LInux Firewall from the Network menu?

Sorry, I was borrowing the phrase from a prior post.

Yes, the Puppy Firewall which pops-up and strongly recommends itself - and which offers a Default install protocol.

Where are you seeing this pop-up?

The default installation will close all ports so that no services are available to remote hosts.
