[THIN] Re: no, no, help me....you printing gunu's

Hi Brian,

The painful part about answering this is the suggestion I might be a
gunu ;-)

A relatively easy way way to do what you want is to use lpd/lpr. 

That way you got "driverless" (lpd doesn't care) connectivity between
your servers, with the only stipulation being that the drivers have to
be for similar or compatible printer models.

lpr/lpd is somewhat more costly since it requires formatted print jobs
with the print formatting done at the "client" end. But it works
printing to just about anything.

Regards,

Rick

hi list,

if I have 2003 terminal servers, and do not wish them to install v2
print drivers, how do I get the 2003 printer servers to print to
printers attached to windows 2000 printer servers which have v2 drivers
installed??

I tried to add create a mapping in the 2003 servers ntprint.inf which
held the v2 driver name but pointed to a v3 driver installed...
unfortunately, this seemed to end in tears and the job never
appeared.... and the queue stuck... I guess that the problem here is
that I am driving from v3 driver at the terminal server, creating the
print job and then sending to a printer which spools to the printer
using a v2 driver for a printer with the same driver name.

ok, now, I must admit, I;m not altogether up to speed with the printing
process in term services and am currently churning through
www.printingsupport.com / Brians books /bernards books, but I can't see
any stuff about printing from v3 drivers to printers attached to print
server with v2 drivers... can this be done???

in fact, what exactly is the process, if one prints from a terminal
server to a network print server, why doesn't the print server just pass
on the print job??

thanks in advance, brianos
