Network Printing not working

Postby L551 on Sat Jan 01, 2011 9:44 pm

I am trying to connect my LMDE machine to a printer on our network, a HP OfficeJet Pro K550. The printer is connected to a Vista x64 PC.
I usually connect non-windows PCs via SMB to print, and they work. Macs find it, and Ubuntu can find it. However on LMDE, it says no printer exists at that address.

I don't know why it doesn't see it. I only had this problem before on Ubuntu when the firewall was not allowing it to find it, but the firewall is not enabled on LMDE.
