<br><br>I'm very intrigued by all of this. I have a printer connected to my<br>network. There are also two computers on that network. One running<br>Windows and one running Linux. Both print to the printer "out of the
<br>box" more or less. I didn't have to edit any files. On the Windows<br>box I did have to disable the firewall (but only long enough to install<br>the printer drivers). And I'm not using a firewall on Ubuntu (unless
<br>they set something up by default in iptables or some such thing). The<br>router both connect to has a built-in firewall and I didn't need to do<br>anything with that for the printers.<br><br>I'm just curious. Is my situation odd or unusual?
<br><br>[Note: This doesn't relate to my other posts here about my printer<br>problems. I have two printers. One has been a problem, and the above<br>mentioned has not. The "problem" printer is a driver issue]

Scott, it sounds like you have a networked printer attached directly to your hub/switch/router. If that's the case, I wouldn't consider it odd at all that you did not have to manually edit any config files.
