Hopefully someone can give me some help. At my office, I run Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer. I am trying to connect to a printer over the network that is connected directly to a Windows XP machine. I have gone through all of the steps to install the printer. I have Samba. The printer is shared on the XP machine. I have the drivers.
I have Windows7 on one machine. Ubuntu 12.10 on another. I have a printer connected to the Windows7 machine. Basic network home lan setup. The brother printer works fine on windows 7. I setup "share printer" on the windows7 machine.
Lets say there is Machine A (Ubuntu) in Network A and Machine B in Network B. There is also Machine C (Windows 7) in Network B and I can access it through RDP from Machine A.
What I need is to be able to reach Machine B from Machine A (i.e. can ping it, connect to arbitrary port, etc).
How can I manage something like this?
I don't work with macs much, even called up a friend who runs a business maintaining macs for other businesses, he was stumped.
Have an older Xerox 4500N printer connected to the network. The mac computers on the network cannot find the Xerox. Every Windows machine sees the Xerox. Every Windows machine can ping the ip address of the Xerox.
can't get the Samsung CLP-620ND printer that is on my local network to work. Using "system settings" app, it always installs as if it is a local printer, even though I selected "network printer." Also, when I tried to specify the URL address of the printer, Fedora still thought it was hooked to the local machine. Bah.
Has anyone gotten it to work?
