DEC ln17ps and Linux printing

You might still habe one of those great network printers but since the printer still prints, the operating systems will change. Windows 7 didn’t even provide a proper driver for my loved printer. Linux however does! But access is quite hard. I found out that the following LPD-queue will enable access to the printer 8you might need it for CUPS etc.):

lpd://(IP OF YOUR PRINTER)/PASSTHRU

Have fun!
