Linksys Print Server Issues with Mac
Posted on 2004-08-01
I just bought a Epson Stylus Photo R200 printer and wanted to network it so that all computers in the apartment could access it. I bought a Linksys 4-port USB Print Server to do the job, and had no issues with the Windows-based laptop I connected to it. In trying to get my iBook connected (with OS X 10.3.3) I had some issues. All of the print drivers installed easily, but, when I tried to establish an IP print port, problems came up. I set the type to be LPD/LPR and entered the IP address for the print server. I initially left the Queue Name blank and attempted to print, but received an error. After reading around on Google Groups, I found someone who had a similar issue with the same print server. They suggested using "ls" in the Queue Name field. I tried doing this and the printer responded, but printed out what looked like machine language. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get this to work?
