Really showing my ignorance here.
Up till now, I've not done much with printing under Linux, at least not for my own home system. The printer I use (Brother HL-5050 mono laser) was attached to an OS/2 machine, and I used to do all my printing on it.
However, my one remaining OS/2 machine is currently offline. I'm setting up an Amahi home server, partially because it could be useful for a customer and partially because I can see it helping to rationalise my own home network. I've got the printer attached to it, and I can print from Windows (its shared as a Samba share by Amahi).
I've got two problems. One, I have no idea how to add it to Vector - do I use CUPS (and if so, how do I specify the printer path), or do I add it through Samba? The second problem being that I currently can't access Swat - when I select it from VasmCC, it opens Seamonkey and I then get a 'failed to connect" error. To be precise, as below:
The connection was refused when attempting to contact 127.0.0.1:901.
I seem to remember seeing that sort of error during the VL 6.0 Standard beta, but I thought it had been fixed, and I don't remember the fix anyway...
Suggestions welcome - what is the best way to get my VL Standard install to see the remote printer?
