D-Link multiport print servers

Iím configuring a D-Link DP 300U multiport print server for use at home with OpenSuSE 10.0 and I thought Iíd keep some notes on my linux adventures here.

DLINK print servers listen on ports 9100, 9101 and 9102 for multiport models and 9100 for the single port models

So all I have to do is configure my CUPS printing to point to theIP address of the print server and the port numbers are 9100 = LPT1; 9101 = LPT2 and 9102 = USB.

BTW the DP 300U defaults to 192.168.0.10 but if someone else has configured it, the only way to reset it to factory default is to download the D-Link windows software from the D-Link site, connect the PC and the DP300U to a hub and let the software find it. Then you can configure the device.

  1. I have windows xp and SLED 10sp1 in my network at home. I currently use a Linksys 2 port print server than I can not get to work with SLED, so looking at going with the D-Link DP 300U multiport print server. Did you have any issues problems getting it to work? If you did get it to work will you please give me the step by step, I am very new to SLED (Linux). Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Sorry John I missed your comment. I had no problems with the D-Link 300U.

      The laptop I had SLED on died and I ended up moving to an Apple Mac.

      Setting up SLED printing was easy once I worked the port numbers out. You print to the IP address:Port combination. Let me know if you need more info and Iíll look up my notes.
