[Samba] Using SAMBA to print PDF files

We currently use SAMBA to print from our Sun server to NT printers.  This
configuration is also able to print PostScript files w/o problems.  However,
I am not able to get PDF files to print correctly.  The HP printer just
prints the PDF commands w/o interpreting them.

Am I missing a switch or setting when sending the PDF file to SAMBA or do I
need an extra driver or something or is it not possible at all?

Right now, I am thinking of converting the PDF to PS and then printing it
but it is causing a problem with remote printing  (on a printer in Brazil).

Can you help?  Please email me directly at bipul_agarwal at vantage-systems.com

Thanks in advance and best regards,
