We are having to deal with slow printing from an old dot matrix printer through samba 3 on linux. With four people printing forms for our customers on it, they are all waiting on each other.
If we were to get a second dot matrix, and I install it the same way in samba, is there a way to configure it to print round-robin style, or perhaps print it to whichever printer has the least load.
Basically we want to make it where there is only 1 printer to choose from for the users in windows... but then have samba load-balance the print jobs across multiple printers from that one pseudo-printer.
Can this be done?
