Hello all, Im having a problem and im hoping someone can help me out. I have Redhat 7.3 running Samba on a PC at home. Everything is working beautifully, except that i can print from my Windows 2000 Pro box. I am aware that the printer I have is not supported under Linux (Xerox DocuPrint P8)but what i would like to know is the following. The printer is hooked up through the parallel port on the linux box.
1)Is there any way to just use Samba as a place to spool the data while using the print drivers on the windows client(not installing any drivers on the linux box)
2)If the above is possible, besides the standard [printers] section in the smb.conf file, what else do I need to add? I have already added "use client printer = yes" which made my "printer not available" issue go away. but is there anything else I should be adding?
3)If the above works, when adding my printer to my windows box do I just go through the Add Printer Wizard" and browse to the printer. When I do that now there are no printers listed under the "Printers" folder on the Samba share. So I usually just pick the folder itself. I know this cant be right, but Im still learning. Is there something to add to make my printer show up.
If someone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated, I have been searching all over the net but have come up blank. Thanks in advance
