Add the printer IP address and PRINTER_NAME to /etc/hosts.
Keys: h=left j=down k=up l=right esc=into neutral mode i=input before cursor

2. Arrow down to where you want to insert entry

3. type I
4. enter the ip address - tab - enter name of printer tab Enter notes preceded by # character.
5. press " :wq! " (this writes & quits file)
6. Then at # : type "cat<space>/etc/hosts" to see your entries.
7. type ping <your printer name> <cr> (you should get <ptr> is alive)

go to the user setup menu and add the PRINTER_NAME as the default printer for
any users that should use this printer.
