I am new to the Samba world. I have a question regarding the Windows
NT/2000/XP automatically printer driver downloading.
Do we, the Sysadmins, have to set up different printer entries in
smb.conf to tell the Windows NT/2000/XP end users to use different
printer drivers for their systems? Or Does the Samba have the capability
of automatically identifying client OS, then download different printer
drivers for Win NT/2000/XP accordingly, even each printer has only one
entry in smb.conf? I assume that the printer drivers for Windows
NT/2000/XP will be stored on /etc/local/samba/printers/W32X86 directory.
After checking with your discussion about this issue, it seems to me
could be wrong.
Currently we have Samba 2.2.3-pre on Solaris 8, and we are testing Samba
2.2.5 for Solaris 8 on another machine.
Thanks for your help.
