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.
