View Full Version : [ubuntu] Epson ink info on shared printer

June 8th, 2010, 02:46 PM
Hi all,

I have a 9.10 box running as a file, music and a few other things server. All running flawlessly so far, but I'd like to add the Epson R220 printer to the system so everyone on the network can share it. Easy so far, but what's the best way of doing this so that the remote (windows) machines can get ink info - is there some way of the linux machine acting as a passthrough port, or is it the limitation with the epson/windows drivers that assume that the printer will not be network connected?
