I need help connecting to the Blackarmor NAS 220 print server from my Macbook running OS X v10.6.2. I am fairly new to Mac. No problems setting up printer from my Win7 machine.
I am able to connect to the shares using SMB & NFS and can write to the shares. However, the print server does not show up when I try to add a Windows printer. Also, I have tried setting up using IPP – not sure if I’m doing this correctly.

I have found a solution for manually adding a printer at the Apple website. I have attached a link - not sure if it will post here, though. Apparently the reason OS X didn't find the printer share is that the printer share name was greater than 12 characters (the printer share name, not the NAS host name). I'm not exactly sure, however, where the share name was assigned - it looks like Windows assigned the name. Is that possible? I couldn't find any way to manipulate the share name.
