Driver Execution on the Client

In the first case, the print server must spool the file as raw, meaning it shouldn't touch the job file and try to convert it in any way. This is what a traditional UNIX-based print server can do too, and at a better performance and more reliably than an NT print server. This is what most Samba administrators probably are familiar with. One advantage of this setup is that this “spooling-only” print server may be used even if no driver(s) for UNIX is available. It is sufficient to have the Windows client drivers available and installed on the clients. This is illustrated in the Print Driver Execution on the Client diagram.
