Chag Sukkot Sameach!

Sukkot starts tonight at sundown — just 15 minutes from now! Hannah (who is visiting from LA) and Ariella decorated our sukkah today.

SMC7004AWBR Barricade Printer Setup from Mac OS X

I finally got Ariella’s iBook to print to our Brother 1440 printer via the SMC Barricade 7004AWBR print server. Here’s what I did:

System Preferences > Set Up Printers…

Add > IP Printing

Printer Type: LPD/LPR

Printer Address: 192.168.2.1

Queue Name: LPT1

Printer Model: Brother HL-1440 series CUPS.gz

I found some other pages on the Net that suggested using “lp” for the Queue Name, but that didn’t work. I finally ended up downloading the “How to install a LPR printing port on WinXP” document from the SMC support site, and that told me to use “LPT1” as the queue name instead.
