Thank you so much for the reply!
Actually I did get this working day before yesterday.
1) I did open the ipp(port 631) on the firewall but after it was working I removed this entry and it continues to work.
2) I ended up using the existing printer setup in PCBSD. (Did not create a RAW printer) This is an HP printer so it uses that HPLIP driver. It seems to handle the printing ok.
I set up the printer in WinXPP. That was interesting. Set up as a network printer.
First, assigned a name to the PCBSD host in the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\host file. (Actually I used the Network IP. Maybe I should change to the internal one you suggested)
Next, went to the printer via the browser on WinXPP to see the printer name/URI (http://hostname:631/printers
) so... ... The network URI is: http://hostname:631/printers/lp
After that, it just worked.
Using the Web CUPS interface I could see jobs getting into the queue. I still need to do some testing with the user with printing from their Win applications to make sure there is no interference from the driver on PCBSD. If there is I will try making a RAW printer to print to.
BTW: This is one of those WORKERS as in (No Play) I was concerned how PCBSD would be received but felt it was ready. So far, they Love it!
