I know you can send print jobs to unix printers using lpr and we do it works fine. My problem is getting a unix box to print to a nt queue. You are supposed to be able to setup an lpd service on nt and assign it a local queue but I have looked and looked and tried and can't seem to get it done.
I do hae tcp/ip and microsoft printing installed on the server thats to run lpd service. Where do I go from here? The printer we are trying this with is connected to the server via a parallel cable, does it have to be a network printer? Also can a shared parallel printer on another machine be given an lpd queue on a nt server box so that a unix user could print to the nt server queue and get redirected to the shared printer?
