We have several Canon mf4550d printers at the office directly connected to Windows 7 machines. I need to print from a Linux server to those printers.
I have installed the latest drivers for my model of printer. I've added the printer to CUPS through the web interface on
http://localhost:631. All printer jobs are sending without any problems (no errors in log files), but the printer doesn't print.
Other printers, for example HP LaserJet 3055, work fine.
I guess it'd be connected with the port settings on the local machine, because canon has port settings as
usb001 but HP has
I tried to plug both printers into one computer and in the port settings of the Canon I changed
DOT4_001. And then when I send printer jobs to the Canon my HP prints the following error:
unable to open the initial device, quitting.
How can I resolve my problem?
My Linux server uses AltLinux 7.0.4 Centaurus (see its cups package).
