Windows Print Server
Posted 17 January 2010 - 01:18 PM
I've been thinking about this for a while and I think I've heard about it. I have a Lexmark x4960, a wireless printer that has no Linux support. I have a Windows Server 2008 machine running 24/7 that I thought I could install a print server on that would take printing jobs from my Linux computers and send them to my Lexmark printer. Any idea on how to do that, and if it can be done?

'ip/hostname of printer'/'port name' -> your network print driver.
Now the printer will be installed for network use, and you simply need to share it, and add additional drivers for different versions of windows/etc (both of which are accessible by right-clicking and going properties on the newly created print share in the printers and faxes folder).
