sharing lpt1: port on redhat8/samba
Posted on 2003-03-13
I've got Redhat 8 box, with samba/smb installed and configured and working,
I would like to add a printer share, that directly shares the lpt1: port, my aim is to be able to print from a Windows 98 workstation, by simply printing to \\linuxps\printer and installing whatever driver is needed on the Win98 machine individually,
I don't know what printer system under linux I am using - that is unconfigured
What settings/modifications do I need to make to get it sharing the parallel port directly? I do not wish to install any type of driver that ties the redhat box to a certain printer - I want to 'plug and play' the printer, and install the relevant driver on win98..
