My raspberry pi is used as a print server and everything works except one thing... my printer which is connected directly via ethernet cable is not always found by cups. However, each time I restart my server while my printer is on, it does find it.
I suspect a different address is assigned each time I restart the printer which is why cups doesn't find it (I might be wrong though). My questions are:
- How can I see the MAC address of the printer?
- How can I assign a static IP to this printer so cups will always find it?
I'm using Rasbian 8 (jessie).
