    Connecting to my Tektronix 560 via TCP/IP

    Help. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a color laser (Tektronix/Xerox 560) with a PhaserShare network card installed. I want to set it up via TCP/IP to my existing network. I have a Linksys router. I can ping the printer. I can even view the built-in web interface. How do I get to __use__ it via Windows XP-Professional and Windows XP-Home??? The "server" built in does not show up in my network anywhere, but I can navigate to it directly. Both printer and network have the same basic 192.168 blah blah and same subnet mask. I'm baffled. Help!

    Have you tried adding the ip address of the printer in the Add new printer screen (as below)?

    Yeah. That didn't do anything. I think I might have fixed the problem. I went back to the Windows-XP setup/install and installed all of the optional networking components, including the Smsomething printing. When I went back into the Add New Printer, the IP-address showed up as a port. Seems to work now.
