I would like to know how windows 7 "add a printer" wizard, "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer" does its "searching for available printers". When I do this, I get "No printer found", when there is a print server, on the same subnet, in the domain, with printers published to AD.
Is there any way to change the search behavior for our domain? I know we can click on "The printer that I want isn't listed", but then I have to have the users either find a printer in the directory or tell them to browse in \\server_name\ and that just doesn't seem very user friendly.
The print server is a Linux server using SAMBA (that has been joined to the domain) and the following components:
CUPS, Foomatic, Gimp-Print, Gimp-Print-CUPS, and Avahi
