Producing an Example by Querying a Windows Box

We could run rpcclient with a getdriver or a getprinter subcommand (in level 3 verbosity) against it. Just sit down at a UNIX or Linux workstation with the Samba utilities installed, then type the following command:

root# 

rpcclient -U'user%secret' NT-SERVER -c 'getdriver printername 3'

From the result it should become clear which is which. Here is an example from my installation:

root# 

rpcclient -U'Danka%xxxx' W200xSERVER \
    -c'getdriver "DANKA InfoStream Virtual Printer" 3'

    cmd = getdriver "DANKA InfoStream Virtual Printer" 3

 [Windows NT x86]
 Printer Driver Info 3:
         Version: [2]
         Driver Name: [DANKA InfoStream]
         Architecture: [Windows NT x86]
         Driver Path: [C:\WINNT\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\2\PSCRIPT.DLL]
         Datafile: [C:\WINNT\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\2\INFOSTRM.PPD]
         Configfile: [C:\WINNT\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\2\PSCRPTUI.DLL]
         Helpfile: [C:\WINNT\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\2\PSCRIPT.HLP]
 
         Dependentfiles: []
         Dependentfiles: []
         Dependentfiles: []
         Dependentfiles: []
         Dependentfiles: []
         Dependentfiles: []
         Dependentfiles: []
 
         Monitorname: []
         Defaultdatatype: []

Some printer drivers list additional files under the label Dependentfiles , and these would go into the last field ListOfFiles,Comma-separated . For the CUPS PostScript drivers, we do not need any (nor would we for the Adobe PostScript driver); therefore, the field will get a “NULL” entry.
