I am quite sure this question has been asked before but I can't find
anything in the archive and Google does not turn up anything useful.
I have Fedora Core 5 with an HP LaserJet 5L printer connected to the
LPT port. I also have the CUPS printer queue shared.
I am trying to setup up a Windows XP laptop with wlan on my home
network to be able to print to that printer.
I have little understanding of how to make samba work. I have found a
lot of information but most of it does not help me or make sense to
I only want the win xp box to have access to the printer and nothing
Do I have to setup a user account between FC5 and XP to make this
I no basically nothing about XP. I don't know if I have FC5
configured to allow XP to see the printer.
I have spent 9 hours trying to figure out how to setup two different
OS and samba and one printer to work on both OS. I have made no
progress in completing my objective. I don't know which way is up
right now. Can some one help me?
