Hi! I've setup an Ubuntu box to be our printer server. I followed the how-to on some sites by using CUPS to share the printer to Linux and WIndows machines.
It worked by putting the URL : http://IP:631/printers/printer
. It worked on Ubuntu machines and Windows XPs however its not working in Windows 98.
Can someone tell me the difference between sharing the printers using CUPS and sharing the printer using Samba? I want to share the printer in such a way that if I access \\IPofprinter, I will be able to see the shared printer on my Ubuntu box. In that way, I can connect my Windows 98s to my Ubuntu printer server. Hope someone can help me on this. Thanks.
