RH 8.0 print to Windows Printer

RH 8.0 print to Windows Printer

I have a Samba book Oreilly...so far it's excellent I've got samba up and running on one network however I'm doing a little something different now it may not work but I wanted to have you all review it.

The question is this, can a Linux box print to a shared printer that is on a Windows domain?  The printer is behind a Axis printserver.

I was also thinking about sharing that printer on my Windows laptop and pointing my Linux box to that printer, will that work?

Thanks for the input.

Which one of me are you talking to?
My very own LUG!

RE: RH 8.0 print to Windows Printer

I don't know what an Axis printserver is, so I can't answer that question. The second one will definitely work. If you have redhat 9, it has a nice gui for configuring this.

sorry about the redhat 9 comment, didn't read the title to see that you're running 8. I think the same printer gui is there though.
