You cannot access it by name in MOS! You need the IP.
(You may define name and IP in system-prefs/hosts. But don't know, if it works in that case....)
But anyway: If your Router does'nt forward any direct access to <router-IP>:<Port> to USB-PrinterPort, or needs a special command from printerdriver to be activated, then I think, it won't work....... whatever you do in MOS-Prefs.....
So as I recomanded above: The easiest way is a small parallel2Ethernet-Printerserver (Netgear) - it's nearly plug&play
And this Server is so tiny, that it fits under your printers port-cover.......
By the way: I use this printerserver sometimes for a (very, very) old Needleprinter (Seikosha SL92) - works flawless.[ Editiert durch Amigaharry2 06.04.2021 - 11:55 ]
