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.

Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone out there might have any insight into a little problem I'm having. I've spent several hours on google, and looking up info on both cups and samba. Here's the situation:
I have a Win2k pro box with hp usb printer attached. The printer works fine under windows. I also have a RH9 system, and the two are networked together (currently workgroup) through a linksys wireless router. Both machines can see each other and share files.
I have the 2k box set up so that the appropriate services are running to print with unix systems, over tcp/ip, etc.
I set the printer up through the cups web interface, and everything looks fine. It can see the printer and it says it's idle, waiting for jobs. I have the appropriate symlink for smb in the backend directory pointing to smbspool.
Now, I go to send it a test page (same thing happens when printing within a program, just using the test page for simplicity) and cups reports that the job has been sent and was completed. However, on the Win2k box an error comes up saying that the document failed to print "remote downlevel document" to usb...".
I'm stumped. I've searched and seen several other problems similar to this, but most appear to be dead threads on other message boards that never got resolved.
One other thing that may bear mentioning. When setting the printer up thru the cups web interface it allows me to select the appropriate driver for my printer. However, when I look at the printer thru the graphical tool in RH9, my printer is not listed in the driver menu (for HP). However, it's set to a raw print queue, so I'm not even sure how much the actual driver comes into play. Shouldn't Windows worry about that, just receive the job and send it off to the appropriate printer?
Sorry for the length of this post, but I'm really stumped and wanted to give as much info as possible. Thanks in advance for any advice.
I would like to know if you have figured your problem out. Mine is much the same - I have not got the linux box to work to the same degree as you, yet. I have a network of 3 windows computers and want to change my small business to mainly linux.
I have 2 printers (canon s6300 [A3 printer] and canon MP730) that are not Linux compatable according to linuxprinting.org.
I would like to know - if I get Samba to work with the printers connected to a win2000 box will I be able to print from the Linux computer via the network on the printers connected to the win2000 machine.
