Network printer and CUPS

Once I have to connect network printer to my computer with Suse on the board, this printer was connected to network via samba (from windows).

First thing, you need to do – open the browser and go to http://localhost:631/admin/ and go to the Admin page and choose Add printer.

Maybe, u’re lucky man and you already have your printer in found devices. If so, just click next all times you asked 🙂 If no, choose Windows printer via samba and enter address of the printer in format:

socket://printer_ip:9100 (for printer connected through print server)

smb://PrinterIp/PrinterName (for printer via sharing through samba on windows pc)

After that you have to choose drivers directory. Thats’ all.
