How to add a windows print server to Linux?
 
I've got a print server that I need to be able tp print to a Windows machine with. I want the easiest way possible to be able to print from a Linux machine to a Windows machine.

Is there any graphical configuration utility that I can use to do this configuration?

Thanks.

cups + localhost:631 through your browser gives you a gui.

So I can add a printer in CUPs that will connect to an outgoing Windows machine?

Never knew that.. I'll have to try it out.

i guess i'm not sure of your terminology. when you say "print to a windows machine," i take that to mean the windows machine is the print server? in that case, yes you can add the printer through the cups interface (make sure you have samba). technically i don't think you even need cups, you could just use lpd/smbprint, but you asked for a gui. kde and gnome also probably come with printer setup guis, what desktop do you use?
