Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213408
Does not print using Ethernet interface
Last modified: 2008-03-17 02:04:15 EDT
Description of problem: Does not talk to printer: HPLJ6MP on DLink Pocket
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):1.2.4
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hook up hardware, which is currently working under Windows XP and has under
at least the last two or three releases of FC: Printer and model PRS301PE or
possibly other Jet Direct-type of external interface.
2. Configure with system-config-printer: LPD//192.168.1.20/9100
3. Click on "print test page".
Actual results: Nothing happens.
Expected results: Either a test page or some error messsage useful in tracing
Additional info: The following obvious bug may be related: when attempting
instead to use the Web interface, as suggested by Aaron Konstam on the Fedora
Forum, I get similar results. However, after clicking on "start printer" button
I get "unable to connect" error (Firefox) ever after when attempting any other
task (button or link) until Cups restarts.
Correcting 'hardware' field -- you are using x86_64, not ia64, right?
Please confirm the URI you are using. 'LPD//' is not valid as the start of a URI.
The information we've requested above is required in order
