If you already have samba running on your system, then samba printing will work ( and will also work with earlier  versions of windows (95/98 etc) without too much trouble. If you only have 2000/XP windows systems, then you are probably butter off going for ipp.

Unfortunately, the epson c45 appears to be a 'cheaper' unsupported printer for CUPS. (Unfortunately, manufacturers aren't always that helpful when assisting with driver development under Linux). However you will find that many similar printers work with the same driver. Have a look here:

http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Epson-Stylus_Color_670 - Hopefully same driver will work for you?

As a top tip - get the driver working from Linux first, and then deal with the issue of connecting to it remotely. The CUPs interface:

http://localhost:631/admin

is pretty good and works well. (Note - by defauly, you can only connect to this from the localhost machine).

Yes you can bypass the linux printing process if you wish and use only Windows machines. As you have suggested, this can be done via IPP (or raw). Under these circumstances, CUPS acts as an ipp gateway and any PC that you wish to print from must be IPP enabled, and have a suitable driver for the printer concerned.
