Hi there!

We have a network with mainly unix machines and NT:s. Recently someone bought a laptop with win95 installed. If I want to print anything from that machine I need to via my NT which in turn sends it to the Unix server (another possiblility is to send directly to printer from my NT, depending on which printer I send to). To be able to do it like I had to share the printer driver on my NT with the network. This I would like to remove. The problem is, I have no clue how to print either to a unix print server or directly to the TCP/IP printer from the win 95 machine. The only options when installing a new printer on the win 95 is either locally or to a shared printer via microsoft network. I want a TCP/IP option as well.

Regards Henrik

You can unfortunately not do this with windows95 without purchasing 3rd party software. Intergraph (www.intergraph.com) has some fine, but EXPENSIVE, utilities to support TCP/IP printing. Or you could instal SAMBA (http://samba.anu.edu.au) on the UNIX and make theUNIX machine apear as any other Windows networking machine.
