Re: printing



CUPS(Common Unix Printing Service) is another print service. Your SAMBA
print shares would use cupsd instead of lpd (lpr). You can access cups via
a web browser on port 901:

http://localhost:631

However you can use SWAT(samba-swat) to manage your SAMBA . You can also
use redhat-config-samba, which is another gui tool.
