Installing Samsung SCX-4100 Printer on Linux & DPR-1260 Server

My sister gave me a Samsung SCX4100 Laser printer she didn't want anymore and I decided to see if I  could set it up on my D-Link DPR-1260 wireless print server. I can report that I was successful in my attempt. I went to the Samsung website and downloaded all the XP files and also discovered that they provided Linux software too!  The installation on Windows XP went without a hitch. Then, I attempted to install it directly on my Mepis 6.5 LInux system and discovered to my surprise that there were not drivers pre-installed. Fortunately, with the Samsung provided Linux software, I first installed the printer locally to Mepis. After the drivers were  install, I then moved the SCX4100 to the DPR-1260 print server and installed it to the network. I just followed the directions and tips I have posted on this blog earlier (10/03/07) when I first set-up my print server. So, if you have a Samsung SCX4100 printer and wonder if it will work on the D-Link DPR-1260 print server, as well as with Linux, the answer is YES!

  2. Have you been able to setup the dpr1260 to work with any other printer? Are you setting it up on XP or Linux? Did you read my blog entry I posted on 10/03/07? That entry explained many aspects of the setup When I setup the scx4100 it was pretty much automatic but I had already set it up working on another printer. I need more info from you.

  3. I have not been able to set up the dpr1260 to work on my computer. I am running vista and I have not been able to get the two to talk

  4. Unfortunately, I have no experience on Vista and how MS has reconfigured it's network setup. I would set up a static IP address for the server and make sure the plug and play is enabled in Vista. I have read on other blogs and professional computer writer stories, that Vista can be difficult with network setup and keeping the network configuration once setup.Good luck!

  6. I never did use this printer much as it was so slow in warming up and I don't use it today. If my memory is correct, I never was able to scan on the network with it. It may be able to if configured correctly, but I just don't know for sure. Good luck.
