    Issues connecting to network printer.

    Hello!

    Im trying to install a network printer that has a static IP on my home network.

    I have no issues "connecting" to the printer since the ping [the ip of the printer] is working just fine.

    But when installing the printer (lpd://192.168.15.21/) I get the following "error"

    idle - /usr/lib/cups/backend/lpd failed

    How do I solve this issue?

    EDIT: Laserjet 4050

    Thanks for you interest in solving my issue.

    Fortunately, I managed to solve it by myself. The problem was that I forgot about the printservers queue, and thereby tried to redirect my "printer-installation" to a queue that did not exist.

    But now it is up and running!

    SOLVED!
