Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

Well I did it without doing all the practices .... I did it quite simply by this

I installed a Local Printer on my windows machine, when it did not find any printers attached to the system, it returned an error,
then I chose Select Printer Port option,
and from that Option I chose the Create Port Option
Then I defined the IP Address of my Linux Printer and left all things on default, Like Device Type to Generic Network Card and that's all.
For HP Printer choose any Laser Printer, and it works really........
