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!

  1. How do I get the dpr1260 to work with the scx4100

  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!

  5. Hi!Just want to ask you one thing. Are you able to use the scanner function of the SCX-4100 through the network?Thanks.Nuno.

  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.

  7. I congratulate, what excellent answer.

  8. Thanks for the blog loaded with so many information. Stopping by your blog helped me to get what I was looking for. toner buyer

  9. Business screen printing presently utilizes sensitizers far more secure and less harmful than bichromates, as of now there are huge choices of pre-sharpened and "client blended" sharpened emulsion synthetics for making photograph responsive stencils.

Camping at Torreya State Park

Torreya State Park is located about 60 miles west of Tallahassee, Florida in the “Big Bend”. This park is noted for its varied terrain, ranging from hardwood to swamp wetlands and an area we Floridians could call “canyons” (large washed out clay hills). It’s the closest thing we can find around here that is similar to the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. The park has a nice network of trails to explore. My 13 year old son and I arrived at the park on Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm, the first day of spring. We had made reservations ahead to ensure our sites in the primitive camp areas. Because our region had been receiving abundant amounts of rainfall, we knew the mosquitoes would be in full force. We were not disappointed. We came prepared with plenty of bug repellent.  This trip could be called an "Introduction to Backpacking" for me and my son. We have done car camping, but yearned for a taste of “true” camping.

Review of Crocs Men's Modi Flip Flops

Review of Crocs Men's Modi Flip Flops As a result of an injury and suffering from Plantar Fasciitis and a heel spur, I needed some comfortable flip flops that offered support and heel comfort.  I previously had some Croc knock-off, slip on shoes and they felt comfortable, so I did some online research, reading reviews about various Croc shoes, and determined that the Croc Modi Flip was highly regarded. I went to my local sports store and tried on half a dozen flip flops to see which were the most comfortable, comparing them to the Modi Flip, and determined I like the Modi the best as they seemed to provide the best comfort for my heel. As an added bonus they have nice foot massage bumps. I first bought size 11 thinking it fit the best, but once at home, sitting and walking in the house, I decided they were a little snug across the top of my foot, so I exchanged them for size 12. They fit perfect, not too tight when sitting in a chair, yet snug enough when walking.
