Dear raju_muchunde,

regarding your first question (debian clients prints on win2008) you could activate the print server role of your win2008 server. Now everytime you share a printer, all lpr clients in your network are able to reach them through the lpd service within the print server role. See the link below for further information.

Regarding to your second topic (using vista as a print server for linux clients) you can enable Vista LPD Daemon to achieve a similiar functionality as the win2008 solution above. For a detailed example look at:

http://macs.about.com/od/macwindows/ss/prtsharevsta104_4.htm

For the client side:

In the "normal" debian distribution you have cups to access network printer and you easily use its web interface to add and configure your printer that was shared beforehand on your win2008 server.

You can access cups web interface trough http://localhost:631

However, I have no knowledge about whether your "embedded debian" distro that you mentioned above comes already with cups installed.


Kind Regards,
Buckmeister
