How to print from Windows on a remote unix server accessible with ssh
Posted on 2004-09-21
Not sure if this is the right channel... I have an XP workstation and I can ssh to a unix server with LJ 4100 attached. I used to be able to use LPD/IPP to print from Windows on the remote printer, but the latest security enhancements don't let any traffic through but ssh (and Windows file sharing). Now to print the files I have to print to file first, copy the file to the server, then print it from the unix command line. I'd like to be able to just print from Windows without the intermediate steps. Is this possible? I know how to use ssh to print a remote file on a local printer, but I have an opposite situation. Needless to say, I don't have any admin privileges on the server, only on my workstation.
