Hi Paul,

The printer is attached to an Ubuntu box which is installed in a  
closet. Attaching to my MacBook really isn't an option, nor is buying  
a Mac server simply because my Mac laptop can't be bothered to connect  
to my printer. :)

I have tried various combinations of the IP, port, and printer name in  
the OS X dialog to no avail.


Please excuse typos or brevity, this message was sent from my iPhone.
