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
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
type printing calls.
The second method is recommended for use over the first.
