I configured a W2000 client to use a lexmark z25 printer on the server.
When I configured the client I got a warning that I configure a null
printer. So I defined the printer as an HP DeskJet 1200C/PS this way I
got postscript image to be sent to the server and there to be printed.
On the server I had to strip off the first lines until the
%!PS-Adobe-3.0 sign and the last two lines. I did that using an awk
script that was added to the print procedure. All that worked fine until
I had to configure a W98 machine.
When using the W98 machine I encountered problems when printing from
English documents are not printed while Hebrew documents print just
fine. Also note that English text printed using other applications
Below are the smb.conf part and the awk script.
