[K12OSN] Linux printing to M$ printers



Hi all,

 

Could you help me please?

 

Scenario:

We have an NT Server with Two servers connected to it.

Both printers are shared and do have their own IPs.

We also have a few Unix and Linux servers and workstations installed on our network.

 

We need to setup printing from on Linux boxes to print to the printers on the NT boxes.

 

What would be the best way to install the printers?

 

We tried to connect on of the printers using lpd. The printing worked but... The paper size was incorrect (A3 instead of A4),

The way it printed was like this:

                                                The text that it

                                                                        Was supposed to print

                                                                                                            But just not in the proper format.

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------

 

Is there a solution to this challenge? What am I talking... of course there should be a solution. Then I should ask someone to please point me to the right direction?

 

Many thanks

Ghaleed

 

PS: One day, when I'm not a Newbie anymore, I would be able to help you all out.
