[Samba] smbprint.sysv

Hello all,

I am currently printing fine from UNIX to a shared printer on a Windows box, 
but I would like to add some functionality to it so that I can move away 
from a local okidata dot-matrix printer.  We run some reports that print 
fine on the okidata but are too big for the laser printer that we have set 
up on the Windows pc.

Are there any other options besides the basics listed in the script 
smbprint.sysv?  I would like to be able to send additional parameters like 
font size and type, landscape, etc to the printer.  I know you can change 
these in the printer interface program for local printers and it appears 
that smbprint is the printer interface program for a remote printer when you 
set it up this way.  I just don't know if there are any other options that 
are accepted through this script.  Any information would be appreciated.  
Thanks in advance!
