The N40 is running http, so i can actually open a browser to
the machine just by specifying the ip address. The LP option
on the printer is enabled. Xerox has the admin password to
the printer so it's difficult for me to see anything more than
what a regular user can see; i don't see ANY printernames in
the configuration. What can this mean? In UNIX, you need a
hostname AND a printername.
Anyone who can shed light on this, many thanks
