Local Printing in unix

By morganchisha ·
Am really not much into unix and have a problem with setting up local printing on a unix machine. I'd like other Pcs having XP to use the option L to print reports from the unix machine onto their printers. Any unix guru out there?

how are they getting to the reports?
the print function in that application should be able to print from thier default printer.

Hi there,

not sure what version of unix you are running, but there is quite a nice freeware tool called CUPS that has a web interface making setting up printers in unix (whether BSD or system V) pretty easy. I am pretty sure it is available for most flavours of unix.

good luck
