    How to print to a Windows XP networked printer

    Hello everyone,

    I have a very small networked printer (HP1505 laserjet). It exists on a wireless network consisting of two XP boxes and 1 windows 7 box. The network works fine as such. I'd like to be able to print to the networked printer from Ubuntu 12.04. I have spent a few hours attempting this using the printer configuration gui. When I attempt to print to the printer using lpr -laserjet myfile.s the file is sent to the queue and just sits there. A message indicates that the printer is not reachable.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions.
