Thanks, but I'm not there yet. On the XP client, I ran "route" from the
command prompt and got, in part:
route ADD 22.214.171.124 MASK 255.0.0.0 126.96.36.199 METRIC 3 IF 2
destination^ ^mask ^gateway metric^ ^
So I tried setting up an XP network printer at these two URLs:
but neither was found. I also tried 192.168.1.0, which is shown by route on
the Linux host. "LaserJet_5MP" is the correct Linux name for the printer,
but I must still be doing something wrong.
