Using a Print Server on Linux?

By McIntyreM ·
Is it possible to use a print server on RedHat Linux. I would like to connect a Xerox laser printer to our network and the server is running RedHat Linux. The printer has a D-Link DP-101P+ Print Server connected directly to it. Can anyone help meout?

Give cups a try, Common Unix Printing System, if your clients are unix, or samba if your clients are windows.

Using a Print Server on Linux?

I have a Xerox DCS35 printer hanging off a Slackware Linux print server. The printer has its own IP address but the server handles the spooling. (The printer is shared via a samba share). My printcap entry is this:

xerox|xerox:lp=:rm=192.168.5.252:rp=dosff-xerox:sd=/var/spool/lpd/xerox:sh:sf:mx#0:

and the samba entry is:

[xerox]
comment = The Xerox Copier
path = /var/spool/lpd/xerox
printername = xerox
browseable = yes
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writable =no
printable = yes
print command = lpr -Pxerox %s; rm %s

This method works well for us, we have three printers including an A0 plotter all connected via the Linux server.
Hope this helps.
