Samba.  See the Samba documentation at
        http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.html

There are several ways to do this. The easiest from the Windows point of
view is probably to install Samba (http://www.samba.org) on the
Linux/Unix box. Check the Samba Web site or the SMB HOWTO
(http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/SMB-HOWTO.html) for basic documentation,
or pick up a book on Samba or possibly basic Linux networking if you
want printed documentation. (I list several Samba books, including one
by me, at http://www.rodsbooks.com/books/books-samba.html.)

OpenBSD server running LPRng, the print spool 'raw' has no 'if=', i.e., it
delivers to the printer exactly what it receives without any filtering.  
Works just dandy.

Hi!,

Quote:> How do you print in windows using a unix postscript print sever.

It should be possible to use something like "samba" on the unix host to share
out the printer or if you are using Win2K or NT4.0, you should be able to use
TCP/IP printing to talk to the printing server located on the "unix" host.

See ya

Has anyone printed from a linux box running samba to a printer connected
to a Windoze machine? I'd like to figure that one out.

It can be done.  I would suggest that you read the SMB-HOWTO located at
http://www.linuxdoc.org which provides some scripts which can simplify the
entire process.

Wery easy with smbprint which comes with samba. If you add Cups as a
printing system there it's a snap to get working carefully following Cups
documentation.

After messing with the regular LPD that comes shipped with RedHat,
I'd installed Cups[1] and must say I was impressed. It's rather
simple to connect to a remote SMB server and actually print your
stuff ;-) Using it on a RedHat 7.1 machine, I ran into no problems
what so ever to get it to work.

I have to a printer connected to an OS/2 computer, which involves the
same process as to Windows.  Just share as per usual in OS/2 or Windows
and then set up a Windows (SMB) connection.

What problems are you having?
