Remember of course that these printers are nice Postscript printers.    We
use 5 of these beasts for our printing.
The following configs seem to work for us.

Printer Drivers on Windows:

We use the Adobe Postscript Printer Drivers.  

Adobe® PostScript® Printer Driver AdobePS (TM) 5.0.1 for
Microsoft® Windows NT (TM) Version 4.0
U.S. English


Samba Config section for the printers:


    path = /var/spool/samba/printers
    admin users = me
    browseable = no
    printable = no
    public = yes
    writable = no
    locking = no

    comment = HP8000
    printer driver = HP8000N
    path = /var/spool/samba/printjobs
    browseable = yes
    printable = yes
    public = no
    writable = no


LJ8000N:ADOBEPS4.DRV:HP8000_4.PPD:ADOBEPS4.HLP:PostScript Language \  




#       global defaults
#       ---------------

#       :af=acct

To make all this work We use LPRNG with the CTI-ifhp-2.2.3 filters installed:

LprNG  can be got from :

Web Page and HOWTO in HTML format:
   and the HOWTO/ directory in the distribution

The software may be obtained from  (Main site)

CTI-ifhp-2.2.3  can be got from : ?????
   I cant rememebr where we downloaded this from! :(  if sombody could
remind me that would be good :)  *ducks* 

Once all that is installed and configured I think it should all work
perfectly :)  Good luck! 

Let me know if you have problems! :)
