    I have a C10LE and have attached a printer to it and have successfully been able to print from an RDP session on Windows Server 2003.

    The next step is that I need to be able map a printer to be accessible from a different server. Basically I want the C10LE to act as a print server so that other users can use ‘add printer’ to get to it.

    1st, is this possible, 2nd how do I do it?

    1. yes
    2. by enabling LDP service for the locally attached printer on the C10LE

    Have you checked the Thin OS Admin Guide?

    Yes I have, however, I am either not getting it or something. Do I need to setup both tabs? In other words, setup the ‘Ports’ and ‘LPD” tab?

    When that is done, how do I add that the printer to Windows? Do I use the IP address of the C10LE?

    Thanks!

    You only need to enable LPD on the “Ports” tab. The LPD tab would be used if you want to map a network printer.
    On Windows you use the IP of the client.

    OK. I did that. I then add printer from either Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 and in both cases the spooler service keep crashing.

    I had enabled LPR printing in both cases.

    It seems to be the printer or driver. I setup a different printer and it works fine.

    Thanks for your help!
