Configuring Host based laser printers as network printers
« on: April 01, 2007, 04:12:03 PM »
Hi All,

I need one piece of information/guidance:

Many of the "host based" laser printers (e.g. HP laserjet 1000 series, 1010 etc.) seem to give errors while printing on Linux ( some of the inbuilt drivers in linux also do not make these printers even print anything) when attached directly through USB interface.

For such printers some drivers are available at linuxprinting.com web site and seem to work better than drivers originally shipped with linux distributions.
If this driver works okay then how to configure the same printer as a network printer if it is attached to a windows box using same driver ?



Thanks In Advance
