computer language which runs on some printers.) to output multiple copies.
That is, samba has no influence on the number of copies printed, at least with
So, maybe this is a driver problem, not a samba problem?
Shifting now to pure speculation, maybe the windows client computer and
the printer need to be in two way communication to allow multiple copies
to be printed.
I have found (On my little home network) that the best solution to
most printing problems is to set up a queue on the linux server which
handles postscript files well, and then send everything to that queue
as a postscript job. I use HP Laserjet III + and it works fine, and all
flavors of windows seems to have that printer driver available.
