You need to use the LP service /etc/init.d/lpd in UNIX and you need to set up the printer definition. Use the man page "man lpd" and it will tell you how to configure it. The kind of driver you use will depend on the kind of printer. Eg., is it an HP Laserjet compatible or a Postscript compatible. That affects the kind of "language" lpd will use to talk to the printer. Setting up LPD can be fairly complex.

Another avenue is using CUPS which is a much better print server solution. You can read the man page by typing "man cups" or "man cupsd".

Good luck,

I am able to configure the print server and configure printer but not able to print

try this.

i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different workstations with the following steps.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

Server or not

I think you should go with the one that has a built-in print server. The main reason is that the build-in print server will allow you to view the status of the printer such as the ink level, page count and paper jam location. It will also allow you to configure the printer remotely with a userfriendly interface.

An external print server will only enable you to print through the network and not configure the printer.

According to Brother's web site, the price difference between the 2140 and the 2170 is about $30. An external print server usualy cost more than that.

Hope this helps.

DP-301P+ configure problem

Technically, it does not "connect" to the computer it connects to the printer. The computer prints via IP to the device. First thing is find the IP it sits on. Use the disk with PSADMIN utility on it and install to the PC. Use the utility to discover and then configure the print server. DON'T lose your password...there is no firmware reset on this model. Add a Standard Ip port in windows printing and you should be good to go.
