Hi experts,

I wish to know what do I need in order to join Debian Print server into Window Domain?
I was trying to use add printer option in Window 7 but printer auto detection cannot find any printers.

I tried to search for Debian print server by IP and I was able to find all the printers.

Is there a way for me to see those printers when I want to add printers from Window 7?

Let me rephrase my questions:

1. Do I need to join into Window Domain in order for domain PCs to see the printers on Debian print server?

2. If Question 1 is true then how can I accomplish this?

3. If Question 1 is false, how can I allow the domain PCs to see printers on Debian print server? Manually configure the link or can still be done automatically if configured correctly?

This is my first time joining linux server into Window Domain and I wish to have some tip and guidance on this. Thanks.

1 - Yes - to "see" them in the Network view
      No - if you just want to print to the Debian print server hosted printers

3-  I would recommend not joining the Debian print server to the Windows domain.  Just use LPR to connect the Windows 7 PCs to print to the Debian print server.  You only need to specify the Host and Port when setting up an LPR printer on each PC.  
     Host = Debian Print server DNS name or IP address
     Port = Printer name on the Debian print server
