PRINTING (Print Server or other)


We have these printers in our Company. Now I still havent checked all the support for all of them.

Kyocera Mita FS 1920
Kyocera Mita FS 3820N
OKI B4350
OKI 5250
CANON iR 1018
HP LaserJET 1022n
Samsung ML-1520
Samsung ML-1210/1200

Is there any kind of a generic print server for Windows. Since Windows supports all these printers.

Printing in Linux using some generic output (print driver like ghostscript) and printing to a Windows Print Server also to a specific printer. More like some kind of a LPD print Queue.

Still haven't spent time searching and testing for solutions....

The linux machine can print to any Windows machine sharing the printer but linux needs to know the printer and have driver for it to print to it. Go to this site and look up each printer and see if supported in linux cups.
