Thats putting it mildly.
I was the one that originally posted this message. I went to
browser and typed in "Localhost:631", and saw that print jobs were still in
the queue and the errors were "Unable to look up host "XXXXX- unknown
As I previously mentioned, I have a local LAN and can connect to the internet
from all of the hosts but am having difficulty in seeing the other nodes on
the network when it comes to printing - that is, when I try to print
remotely. When I go the the printing manager, it shows that it can see the
printer on the remote computer. I can sucessfully ping all of the hosts on
the LAN, however. All five machines have Fedora Core 3 installed on them.
How can I correct this problem? I have a wireless router with four ethernet
ports and the printer is an Epson Stylus C80 on one of the desktops. How do
I get the computers to "find" the host on which the printer resides? Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a similar setup on a 192.168.1.x network behind a cable modem and
router. Using static IP addresses, rather than allowing the router to
assign them via DHCP, and making entries for all the machines
in /etc/hosts works for me.
