    Hi there.

    I'm wanting to setup an Epson BX300F on my CentOS5.5 server with ISPConfig so it may be used with my Windows machines.

    I haven't got the foggiest idea where to start...!

    I've found a guide here... http://www.howtoforge.com/ipp_based_print_server_cups

    And in step four it refers you to a document that I cannot seem to find!
    Also when I go to 192.168.1.xx:631 it comes up with a 'Unable to establish a connection' error message.

    I have CUPS and SAMBA installed... (I think that's what is needed).

    I don't have a GUI for my server, it's command line only.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Code:

    Hi Falko.

    Thanks for the reply, i've been able to sort out the problem I had and i'm now able to access CUPS.

    I am now struggling with how to actually install my printer to the server.
    The download links are at the bottom of page at the following URL.

    http://avasys.jp/eng/linux_driver/download/lsb/epson-inkjet/escpr/

    I have lsb3.1 isntalled and i've tried the command 'yum update lsb' but it says i'm running the latest version.

    I also don't have the foggiest how to actually get the printer driver isntalled within CUPS to make it work.

    It's finding my printer and knows it's there...

    Thank you Falko and everyone else for your help - it's greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    I'm no CUPS expert, so I'm afraid I can't help. :(
