View Full Version : [ubuntu] Network Printer published on server but can't access from network

April 11th, 2009, 12:45 PM
I have an HP Officejet 4255 installed on my Hardy server. I can access it through my browser to print and manage it. However, when I try to add it to my laptop or our other computer (both running Hardy) I can't find it.

After days of web searching I am no closer to solving this. One thing I have come across time and time again is that some people seem to have a 'network printer' option in their add printer interface. I can't find that on my machines.

Can anyone point me towards a thread I have missed or suggest what I am doing wrong (or not doing at all)?

Thanks in advance.

Ok. I upgraded the software. I'm not sure if it was the clean install of CUPS (which I've done several times already) or the newer version that came with Intrepid but it fixed the problem.
