3.5 Configuring and Accessing a Windows Network Printer
Being part of a corporate network and authenticating against a Windows
Active Directory server, you can access corporate resources, such as
printers. GNOME allows you to configure printing from your Linux client
to a Windows network printer.
To configure a Windows network printer for use through your Linux
workstation, proceed as follows:
Start the GNOME Control Center from the main menu.
Adding a printer requires root privileges, so you must enter the root
password to continue.
Select , then select from the drop-down menu.
Enter or select the Windows host, the printer, and the username and
password required to access the Windows computer, then click
Select the driver that most closely matches the printer, then click
The printer is ready for use.
To print to the Windows network printer configured above, select it from
the list of available printers.
