    How do I tell Fedora to use a remote network printer?


    I have a Centos 6.3 puter connected to a USB printer, which is running CUPS, I successfully printed on it. Now I want to print FROM Fedora 20 TO this printer, over the network, they are both connected to my Wifi router. (Fed with ethernet, Centos with Wifi). How do I do this?


    thanks.

    Once you configure CentOS to share it, Fedora should find it automatically. Linux/UNIX: Sharing A CUPS Printer Queue - nixCraft

    Just like to point out nixCraft is a great site for Unix info. I don't know if Vivek is still running it, but the guy is a wealth of Unix info and great teacher.
