I have to buy a Laser printer to share in a LAN on which several computers
with different operating systems (os2, solaris, hp-unix, pc-dos) are attached.
All computers communicate via tcp/ip.
Is it possible under Linux control, through LP daemon, who can print on that
printer ? I suppose one can connect the laser printer through the parallel
port, and then start the Line-Printer Daemon.
Can I have more information on this subject ?
Actually I do not know Linux, but I could install it.
The possible choiches for the printer are:
- HP LaserJet 4MPlus with JetDirect card
- LexMark Optra R+ without ethernet card
P.S. do I really need an ethernet card on the printer ?
