Im trying to set an HP2000CN up on our network. Most of the Config works
great. I can print to the printer remotly via samba etc with no problems.
The only problems I have are as follows:
1) I cant stop the LPD printing a cover sheet on each printout :( WHile
this one is not technically a Samba problem, THe following one is:
2) Im wanting to automatically install the printer drivers for the
Hp2000cn(and the Hp890c) when you click on the Samba Shared Printer.
The problem here is that I cant work out which drivers to add to the
[printer$] defined directory. Neither the msprint.inf msprint2.inf contain
the definitions for this printer as per the:
PRINTER_DRIVER.txt for Samba release 1.9.18p10 20 Aug 1998 file..
And I cant find other refrences to the drivers required directly in any of
the HP Provided ini files :(
I was wondering if anybody had some suggestions? Or experiences
:When you click on a samba shared printer, you can now install the driver
:automatically onto the Windows 95 machine, as you would from an NT server.
