Vista and Ubuntu Networking

Nobody had the answer. Not the full answer.

Get some from here: CUPS Printers

But first, get this bit done:

Neither has the full answer.

The lower has the basics.

You will need WINS to make it work.

And here is the devilish detail.

You need to get on Vista, go into Networks.

Click on your LAN.

Go to properties.

Find IPv4, select, and click properties.

Add WINS server with your Ubuntu IP address.

Click okay all the way down.

Network will open up automatically, and add printer will find your Ubuntu printer and then you can follow the route to install drivers. But only from the Vista end:( 

Then print away.

Beautiful job.
