    Using a Print Server on Linux?

    Locked

    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.

      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.
