Installation of Windows Client Drivers

The printer drivers on the Windows clients may be installed in two functionally different ways:

  • Manually install the drivers locally on each client, one by one; this yields the old LanMan style printing and uses a \\sambaserver\printershare type of connection.

  • Deposit and prepare the drivers (for later download) on the print server (Samba); this enables the clients to use “Point'n'Print” to get drivers semi-automatically installed the first time they access the printer; with this method NT/200x/XP clients use the SPOOLSS/MS-RPC type printing calls.

The second method is recommended for use over the first.
