ok
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
so now how to setup the printer and what to setup in the printer
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
I have decided to opt out of working with you.
I feel that if you are unwilling to answer any of my questions especially in relation to the results of steps we did before, then its unclear what you are doing and if any progress is being made at all. I am now very confused by the last messages you have sent.
You do not need to do anything, when another expert takes over your case you will then be notified.
Thank you and all the best
Richard
