I want to set up a dedicated high-performance Linux/Samba server to
handle print queues for our LAN. My workstations are all NT 4. The NOS
has been NW5, but we are moving rapidly towards Linux. The LAN is Cisco
switched FastEthernet. We have a mix of new HP 8000 Series color
printers, older HP 3 and 4 black & white laser printers and some newer
Epson 1520 color printers, all with LAN cards in them. We print a lot
of of very large color files with multiple copies which require vast
amounts of disk space for the queues.
It seems that TCP/IP printing under NT is the natural solution for this,
but I haven't been able to find any information on setting up a Linux
and / or Samba queue server.
I assume this possible, but what do I need to do to get it going?
Thanks for any assistance.
