Why am I having trouble setting up my printer?

Please have a look at the Handbook entry on printing. It should cover most of your problem. See the Handbook entry on printing.

Some printers require a host-based driver to do any kind of printing. These so-called ``WinPrinters'' are not natively supported by FreeBSD. If your printer does not work in DOS or Windows NT 4.0, it is probably a WinPrinter. Your only hope of getting one of these to work is to check if the print/pnm2ppa port supports it.
