This doesn't pertain *specifically* to XP, but: (from http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/corp-net-guide/printserving-nt- +and-freebsd.html)
[quote] Following is a sample /etc/printcap file entry that defines a print queue named tank on the FreeBSD system pointed to an NT LPD server queue named sherman on a NT Server named big.army.mil in the DNS. This uses the rm printcap capability. Unlike the earlier examples, the output print jobs are sent out not by the PC parallel port but over the network to the NT server. # tank|sample remote printer:\ :rm=big.army.mil:rp=sherman:sd=/var/spool/output/lphost:\ :lf=/var/log/lpd-errs: # [/quote] HTH, -- Joshua "Mmm Jar-Jar; everyone hates you, but me." -- Comic Book Guy _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
