Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Network Printer?

Jan 23, 2011

I recently installed Xubuntu 10.04 on a desktop computer. Everything works fine aside from the fact that I can't access my Dell 3010cn network printer. The printeis accessible and work flawlessly with every other computers running XP, Vista and Ubuntu 9.10I installed the drivers and configured the printer with the exact same parameters as on my 9.10 laptop. The thing is that the printer is always "offline" as if my computer could not connect to it. Also, when I try to acces its options via its fixed IP adress ( through Firefox, I cannot reach the printer. However, the printer responds to every other computer in the house.What am I doing wrong? Is there a firewall in 10.04 that keeps me from accessing to the printer?

Aug 4, 2009

I have a linux domain (FEDORA CORE 1) and two laptop's which are part of my domain with windows xp pro service pack 2.I have given two ip's to both the laptop's being primary as global and secondary as local.I have configured printer in one laptop and shared.Till last week i was accessing that shared printer from my other laptop and every thing was working fine.Last week i formatted one laptop,(which dose not have shared printer) from then onwards i am not able to access my other laptop. I get the following message when i try to accessmy other Laptop,"you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission there are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request"P.S : If i have only local IP i am able to see both the systems and i am able to access my printer, this problem comes only when i add global IP to both the machines.And also i have stopped the firewall and other things.

Feb 22, 2011

i have 3 comps(running suse 11.3) and a laptop(running vista sp2). i have installed samba on all suse comps. i have a printer attached to one of the comps and it has been shared also the internet connection on that comp has been shared. all the computers are connected using lan cables through an ethernet switch. i also have a wireless router which is connected to the ethernet switch.

I am able to view all the comps on the network except the laptop running vista. all the desktops are visible on the network and are able to print and share files on the network and also connect to the internet. the laptop running vista can connect to the internet but its not visible on the network and nor can it share files across the network or access the printer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Locate Printer Drivers In Network Printer Setup?

Oct 19, 2010

I am trying to set uamsung clx2160N as a standalone network printer on my home network. It is a printer with standalone network capability and is connected directly to my router and has a static IP number. We have a few Windows computers at home and they had no problem detecting the printer, installing the drivers and working. Unfortunately my Ubuntu computer recognises the printer and I can even access it's setup and diagnositcs through its IP number. However when I try to add it as a printer, drivers for it cannot be located. #ve tried setting it up three ways:1. Using Samsung's own setup package - finds printer and all the details it needs to work but offers no drivers2. Using Ubuntu's printer setup - recognises printer but stalls at Searching for Drivers dialog3. Trying to *** printer using CUPS - no problem finding and recognising printer, but when I come to search for the driver I get Internal Server Error.

I have of course been trying to do all of these as root. That's the limit of my knowledge reached and searches on the net aren't helping me either. The printer works fine directly connected via USB, so the drivers are on the computer somewhere. How do I get them set up to use the printer on the network?

General :: Unable To Access Windows Shares Or Printer Over Network

Dec 19, 2009

I've got my other networking problem (mostly) solved, but now I'm having other issues.I was previously able to access the shared folders on a Windows machine on the network essentially by default. Now whenever I try to navigate to the shared folders graphically (either through Places->Network->Windows Network->(workgroup name here), or through a custom shortcut on the deskop), I get a message: "Failed to retrieve share list from server". I have no idea what I might have done config-wise (or install-program-wise) to screw it over, but something's definitely not working...it's been like this for a good many weeks, and I've just dealt with it, seeing as how I don't normally use that shared folder much anyway.

What's really ticking me off now, though, is that long before this started happening, I had set up a printer share with the same computer (using the graphical tool that comes with Ubuntu), and that worked excellently to start out. Recently, however, when I tried to print from the same printer (after the "Failed to retrieve share list" message started showing up), it would sit there and show "Pending"; it wouldn't print at all. Then I tried deleting the existing entry and creating a new one, figuring a new, fresh configuration would be created. However, when I tried to add a printer via the graphical tool (same as I had done before), it's telling me that "No printer was fount at [that] address".

Fedora Networking :: 10 - Cannot Access My Bluetooth Printer Any More

Jan 2, 2009

After an update to fedora 10, I cannot access my bluetooth printer any more.

I used to run hcitool to discover the printer, which still works


In the printer configuration, I used to enter a URL like this Printer URL bluetooth://000CF606C08A/

Note, the "bluetooth" protocol is not offered any more in printer setup.

I read that Fedora 10 comes with an updated BlueZ 4 package, which has an improved gnome applet.


The applet discovers the printer, but fails pairing with the device. There seems to be short flash up of a pincode error message (which I cant read).

I've been using blurtooth printing with no problems since Fedora 6.

How to configure bluez cups printing on Fedora 10?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 Can't Use Network Printer

Apr 30, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron 1545, and have an HP CP1215 laserprinter that I'm using as a network printer by connecting it to the USB port on a Belkin Play N600 router (model F7D8301). The printer works fine from the Macs on the network with Belkin Router Management installed, but I'm unable to get the Ubuntu/Dell to see the printer. When I plug the printer directly into the Dell with the USB cable, I can print, so I know the driver is correctly installed. Is there a way Ubuntu can print through the router? Does the Dell/Ubuntu need Belkin Router Management installed, and, if so, how?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Set Up A Virtual Network, Set Up The Printer As A Network Printer?

Jan 17, 2010

Having made the transition from a certain widely used operating system to linux, suse 11.2, x64, successfully and pleasantly we are still left with a few problems.One of these is a few applications i have to use which run only in that old OS. ?To that end I have installed VirtualBox and got them to run with one glitch. I cannot print from VBox to my HP LaserJet 4000, lpt1 printer, which works fine in suse. Searching and posting on the Vbox forums turned up that lpt1 is not supported in the current vbox and that I need to set up a virtual network, set up the printer as a network printer and set it up as an lpd/lpr printer in Vbox WinXP. Have tried many different ways to do this without success, I think the problem is I do not know how to set up a network printer in Linux.

The virtual network is vboxnet0, which does show up in ifconfig, along with my eth0 net, and I can ping the windows guest, gateway and the host from either side host:suse/guest:winXP) respectively. Have tried numerous ways of setting up printer in YaST which works in suse but still does not work from WinXP guest. Have read the suse manual and several sources and searched forums with no results.Finally I am thinking I just don't know how to set up a network printer in linux. Using cups, kde, suse 11.2, don't know what else to tell. Samba is installed, although I am not using it to the best of my knowledge.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Ad-hoc Network To Printer?

Mar 28, 2011

I recently purchased an hp 3050 printer because of it's wireless functionality. I found this (click me) where someone got it working. I tried to follow it step by step, but I couldn't get the ad-hoc network to work reliably.

I used the network manager to locate the printer's ad hoc network (it correctly identified it as ad-hoc) I then edited this connection, made it a "Link-local only" network in the ipv4 tab and then connected.

Usually what happens is that networkmanager claims that it has connected. I get a signal strength and everything, but I can't actually communicate with the printer. I entered the ip address (into firefox) given to me by asking the printer to print it's network settings, and I don't get a response.

Notice that I said "usually". I've tried this many times, and one time, I actually connected to the printer, got the browser interface, tried to use the interface to connect the printer to my wireless router, and failed (then the browser interface didn't work anymore [which of course would make sense if the printer tried to connect to the router, but I don't even know if I got far enough into the process for that to be the problem]). The printer does not show up as a device on my wireless router (my router has a list of all devices that are logged into it), so it failed somehow. I have never been able to duplicate that "success" again in spite of the fact that I've used the printers control panel to reset network defaults.

It seems that the people who were on the questions forum had no problem connecting the ad-hoc network. I kind of suspect that there is something wrong with the printer's wireless device.

PS: I noticed that hp-setup has an option to plug a wireless printer in via USB, set it up then it should work wirelessly, however, I couldn't get that to work with this printer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Printer Not Recognized?

Jul 7, 2011

I have a desktop and a laptop connected by ssh (Places>Connect to Server). This works OK for file sharing but the laptop does not recognize the 2 printers attached to the desktop machine. As I understand (??) it, if the 2 printers are set up as 'shared' in CUPS (as they are on the desktop) then they should be recognized by the other machine on the network. But this is not happening. Is this the right way to network printers?

Networking :: Network Printer Can Be Seen But Not Used?

If this does not qualify as a network question, move it wherever it needs to go.House sitting for a while and they have a Dell 1700N printer on the network. The printer shows up under then Computer->Network->Dell laser printer 1700n, but that is all. Looking under properties just gives me a location of network:///. Cups cannot seem to find it. It would be nice to be able to use the printer. Owners are out of contact for quite a while.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Connection To Network Printer - Re-establish It?

when trying to access it.The ubuntu desktop is wired to the router as is the printer and another iMac wirelessly can still print to the HP. HPLIP status shows the icon for the printer but with a red x indicating no connection to it.The only recent network change was the removal of another router from our network. (service is DSL via a combo modem/router from service provider which previously was connected to a Dlink router which has now been removed from the chain b/c was redundant to the modem/router)

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Samsung 2851ND Printer On Network

Feb 11, 2010

I bought a new Samsung ML-2851ND. I intend to connect it via the ethernet port is has. Under Ubuntu you cannot just plug and play. To set it up you need to connect it via a USB cable (Ubuntu will have all the needed drivers to operate as soon as you plug it in). Then you can go into the advanced settings for the printer and set up the network settings with the right gateway, subnet and IP address. Once you do this you can http into the address and play with all the other settings. Please note that Samsung have fantastic Linux support and you can download the driver etc here: [URL]

All options are supported (1200dpi, duplex, toner save etc). Kudos to Samsung for making a Linux friendly product. This is the second Samsung I have and I bought it because the first worked so well with Linux. If I need to buy another Samsung are my first preference.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Network Printer With User Authentication?

Ubuntu Networking :: Directly Connected Network Printer Unreachable.

Oct 3, 2010

I have a network printer directly connected via ethernet cable to an Ubuntu netbook, but pinging the printer fails, giving "Host Unreachable". The network light on the ethernet socket is lit green, and there is nothing else cable-connected to the network - just a simple cable connection between the netbook ethernet socket and the Network printer (a HP Laserjet 4200n). Ping works fine if I plug the cable into a different machine (a Win XP box) and ping from there, so it's not a cable or IP address problem.

This sounds simple enough and should work, but I'm stumped. Clues, anyone?

Ubuntu Networking :: Dual Boot Transparency: Network Printer?

Dec 21, 2010

I have a headless machine set up on my LAN which is dual boot, Ubuntu 10.04 SE and Windows. I have a printer attached to it. (HP Deskjet D1500 series) I also have a shared folder located on the machine.

Through SMB I've been able to recreate the share in Ubuntu to point to the share on Windows. When the machine is in either OS, the share can be resolved, browsed, edited, etc, from \hostsharename. Through SMB I've also been able to share a printer attached to the machine (and print to it). I have a problem though:

When the machine is in either OS, it is possible to use the same scheme to access the shared directory. This is not true with the printer. When in Windows: My Windows 7 x64 machine can connect to the printer, look for drivers, and when it doesn't find drivers in \hostprint$, it uses its own. My W7x64 machine can print a test page, and any other pages for that matter. My W7x64 machine lists the printer as "HP Deskjet D1500 series" I do not have to re-add the printer.

When in Ubuntu:I have to re-add the printer to my W7x64 machine. I have to specify the driver to use, regardless of whether I use the same print$ directory. Re-adding the printer gives me a network printer by the name of the printer, not the description (e.g. "HP Deskjet D1500 series")

My goal is to mimic the transparency of the shared directory, so whereas I've created a shared directory in Windows that persists between OSs, I want to create the network printer to persist across OSs. I can print to the printer in either OS, but the "printer" I have when the dual boot machine is in Ubuntu is NOT the "printer" I have when it's in Windows.

I need to accomplish this to avoid booting the machine into Windows for a client to print something. It seems very odd that I can make Apache, PHP, MySQL, shares, and common files persist/be identical between OSs, but not network printers. I've worked this for a few days now, exhausting what I can in information on SMB and CUPS to no avail. I am exhausted myself.

Networking :: Print With Use Of Different User On Network Printer

Mar 25, 2010

The company I work for decided to use printers on which one should log in with there MS Windows password. After logging in, one could print there documents. This is ok for the MS windows office PC's, but not for the Linux based systems.The Linux user accounts have a different name than the MS Windows accounts.Because of this, it is not possible to print with that Linux user account. I can create a Linux user account with the same username as the MS Windows account, so that all users can use that account if they want to print something on the network printers. They can use it like:$ ssh <username equal to Windows>@<hostname> "oowriter <path>/<file>"

Now they can print a file from oowriter to the network printer.So my question is, is it possible to use the account name that is equal to the MS windows account name by default?

MS Windows account name = milk
Linux account name = schuurs
Linux account "milk" is created for printing by all users.

user works with account "schuurs" and prints with user "milk" automatically without the use of the ssh string mentioned before.
