samba print job status

By slchiu @ Net Workshop ·
I install RH7.1 as samba server. A HP laser jet is attached to the parallel port of the server. I add a queue for this printer and share this printer from Samba.

I can print from win98 clients but I cannot view the printer job status at the win98printer folder. So I cannot del, suspend or resume job. How can I manage the print job from a win98 client?

Any hints on this? Can win98 client control the Samba printer?

samba print job status

The only trap that springs to mind is make sure your parallel port is setup for EPP. I had to change the line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to read:

/sbin/modprobe parport_pc epp

Once I reboot all worked well. I use an HP930c and an HPG85 printer ona Slackware 8.0 Samba server.

Hope this helps.
