the '(IP)' means Internet Protocol and that's what you want (although Bonjour also gets the job done.

Bigger question is that in your 2 screengrabs, I see that in the printer driver you're selecting Epson Matte (and matte black) but the Photoshop(?) printer dialog shows some sort of 'bright white' which I would not think is correct if you're using Epson Matte paper.

That could certainly account for color problems.

Thanks for the reply Howard.

Bright white is the profile provided by Fotospeed for that (Matte) paper (NTSBrightWhite is the paper name). and Matte black is the black ink (Matte because the paper is Matte) I have printed successfully before with that setting, which is what drives me a little bit crazy.

I have had that issue before tho, and reinstalling the printer (making sure I was using the (IP) one) was normally fixing that color problem. I would like to understand where comes this problem from.
