How did you try to connect to the printer? http://192.168.1.6? Or
does your printer require another port? I can not tell for sure from
the site, but from the requirements it sounds like it may be a
win-printer. (The supplied software does some of the work instead of
having it done in hardware in the printer.) The fact that you can
not connect to a configuration GUI in the printer also tends to
support this. But I do not have the manual, and I have not used this
printer, so I do not know for sure.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
