Printing from OS X 10.6 to a windows print server

I have a user with a new IMac I have setup a number of copiers on her machine with the proper OS X Drivers. When she prints nothing happens the prints do not show in a print queue.

She is printing to a Windows Server 2003 print server. AD has been setup on the Imac and everything else has been working great

Try setting the printers up as Windows printers in the Print and Fax System preferences.  If that doesn't work, then use IP print and LPD as the protocol.  I don't have too many issues with WIndows printing anymore, but when I did, the IP print seemed to work.

LDP Printing worked great. Thanks

We have an all wireless office (no direct Ethernet option for internet). We have 2 macs that have wireless Airport cards (they connect to the internet fine) and then a Dell PC with Windows 2003 Server (no wireless card). Our printer is an older Oki 8P Laserjet that is parallels only and because of that is connected directly to the server. Our macs (both of them) need to be able to access the printer to print off checks from quickbooks.

We have our mac (one of the macs) set up to share internet coming in through the airport card and going out from the ethernet card to the Windows server. The windows server can surf the web, but for some reason we can't share the printer or files. It appears that it is a one way connection to the server and we aren't getting data back from the server.

Are there any settings that I should mess with on the apple or windows side to make this function properly?
