    Hi - hope some can help please - I am stuck! :)

    I am trying to print from a Samsung S8 (and also A5) to a network printer.
    I have googled options and added a few plugins. All seem to get stuck at the same point - I click add printer and it asks me to enter IP address. I enter the IP address of my print server and it then says no printer found (exact error message depending on which plugin I use).

    I am using a printer connected to a print server. To print from my Windows machines on the same network, I am printing to "http://192.168.0.254:631/printers/billion" where "billion" is the name of my HP printer.

    Any ideas?

    TIA!

    I'd remove your printer IP address from your post...

    What printer is it? Does it allow to print wirelessly?

    Why? Not sure there is any risk in sharing an RFC1918 address is there?
