SAMBA and Network Printer

Hi,

I am used to Microsoft Windows System. I am still confused with the FUNCTION of SAMBA (not Apache)  related to Network Printer

Last time, When I setup the Linux System (Linux Ubuntu) in the Enterprise Network. I believe, when setting up the network printers for those linux workstations, I was applying the Samba

To help me clarifying the Understanding of Samba, would you answer my questions please:

My questions:  What is SAMBA and its contribution related to Network Printer?


Thank you

Hi Pony10us,

Per the above link, It seems the FUNCTION of SAMBA to SHARE the printers in the linux environment, isn't it? This is the same to ENABLE the "file and print sharing" in the TCP/IP at the Windows environment.

Without SAMBA, we cannot SHARE the printer in the linux environment, isn't it?

Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.

Thank you

Hi Pony10us,

As we are discussing related to SAMBA now, If you don't mind, I would like to ask a little bit more related to SAMBA ....

- Per my understanding, the Function of SAMBA is ONLY for "File and Printer Sharing" ....that is it!
- If you think, SAMBA has other functions, would you say it please

Thank you

tjie
