Configuring Remote Printers in Fedora


To use a printer that is available on your network, you must identify that printer to your Linux sys- tem. Supported remote printer connections include Networked CUPS (IPP) printers, Networked UNIX (LPD) printers, Networked Windows (SMB) printers, NetWare printers, and JetDirect print- ers. (Of course, both CUPS and UNIX print servers can be run from Linux systems as well as other UNIX systems.)


In each case, you need a network connection from your Linux system to the servers to which those printers are connected. To use a remote printer requires that someone set up that printer on the remote server computer. See the section "Configuring Print Servers" later in this chapter for infor- mation on how to do that on your Linux server.


Use the Printer Configuration window to configure each of the remote printer types:


1. From the Desktop menu, select System Administration Printing (in Fedora 8, select System Printing).
2. Click New Printer. The New Printer window appears.
3. Add a Printer Name, Description, and Location (as described previously) and click Forward. The Select Connection window appears.
4. Depending on the type of ports you have on your computer, select one of the following:
LPT #1 - For a printer connected to your parallel port.
Serial Port #1 - For a printer connected to your serial port.
AppleSocket/HP JetDirect - For a JetDirect printer.
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) - For a CUPS or other IPP printer.
LPD/LPR Host or Printer - For a UNIX printer.
Windows Printer via SAMBA - For a Windows system printer.
Continue with the steps in whichever of the following sections is appropriate.
