Re: netatalk does not see a printer
I have removed the network.opts file in /etc/pcmcia, and I send the "ifconfig eth0 up" before starting AppleTalk. It works!!!
I am not on a network, so my network.opts file was a standard one which I had not edited. I hope it is fine just removing it. I'll try learning something about it, so I can configure it properly.
Anyway now it works, so I am very happy, also because the Asante box was quite expensive.
Thank you very much for your advise
