How to Instal Net Printer on Linux from Ms 2000sr? Help


I have Linux Mandrake 9.1 and share Samsung ML-4500 on Win 2000 srv. My question is: How can I install the printer on Mandrake? Should I install it firts with CUPS or use the kprinter command for it? And what about the printer Driver? is not on the default printer dirvers when installing. Realy I am strugling with it for almowst 2 week and can not get it to work. I only managed to the point when the printer was warming up after hiting print test page, but never got print out from linux PC. What to do? maybe the driver is not install proparly?

Thanks for you hell .

Try setting it up in CUPS as everything else uses CUPS. Windows requires all client machines to have their own driver so you will need to select the same driver as if you had the machine connected locally. If all else fails why not connect the printer to the Linux box and have Windows connect to that? This may also be a good way of finding which driver works best.
