In Solaris 9, how to print to an Epson Stylus C84 connected to the network using a NetGear PS101 Mini Print Server
Posted on 2004-11-17
I have an Epson Stylus C84 color printer connected to a NetGear PS101 Mini Print Server which in turn connects to the network via an ethernet cable. The Mini Print Server allows me to assign an ip address. I can print to the printer via Windows 2000, but not Solaris 9. The Netgear mini print server does not inherently support Solaris 9 out of the box (according to the box, it supports only Windows). However, it was my understanding that if I put Print services for Unix on the Windows 2000 Server, I could print to the printer because that would install the line printer daemon. However, when I add the printer using printer manager in solaris, and try to print using text editor, to no avail. I select the postscript driver since epson c84 driver is not an option. Any ideas?
