SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

I'll bet this question has been asked (and hopefully answered!) many times before, and my apologies if I'm contributing to the clutter on the forum, but I've searcehd and I can't find a solution!
I have a Linux box (running LFS 5.1) onto which I have installed CUPS (which I can print from ok) and SAMBA 3 (which seems to be working insofar as all the file shares work).
Ok, I have 2 Windoze boxes, one running XP Pro and the other XP Home and both have this particular problem, so I'm guessing that the issue lies elsewhere (for once).
The problem is this:
I can see my shared printer on the server. I can connect to it and the drivers get downloaded from print$, but if I try to print I get an error. (Usual windows, no error code or message). I've tried both the cups-samba-1.1.16 and the cups-samba-5.0rc3 printer drivers and have the same problem each time. This is driving me nuts!
If I go to the printer properties and click on the Sharing tab and then Additional Drivers, Only Windows NT4.0 or 2000 is ticked. I can't seem to get the Windows 2000 or XP to activate. I suspect the driver, but am not sure.
Ok, I can get a little further, but I have 2 (hopefully minor) problems...
1) This method doesn't support auto-driver download (which SAMBA does...) so I can't "point-and-print". Not a huge problem, but a pain.
2) How do I install the Postscript printer driver? It isn't on the list (that I can find anyway) and the downloaded one I've been trying to use doesn't have the inf file to let me install it manually...
Map the server name to the server name's ip address in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
then install the driver on the win box, and it should start working. Samba is not necessary at all except for file sharing.
Enjoy! I was overjoyed when i finally got my printer working,
I've been working on getting my wife's Windows XP PC to print through my Fedora PC for so long I think I'm going backwards. Can you be specific? How do I
Connect to the linux server with IPP. Just make sure that cupsd.conf accepts ip's in your LAN, accepts raw.
