Title: How to Share Printers Between Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs on a Network
Post by: rajeev2631007 on October 04, 2015, 01:02:44 am
Linux supports printer sharing over networks, so you can print from your Linux machine, your Windows machine, etc, to another Linux or Windows machine that has a printer attached (ie a "Linux print server" or "Windows print server"). I found some of very good tutorial and articles and videos as below:-

Great stuff.  While it doesn't apply to me, this is always good information to have for people who need to share a networked printer.   8)

Nice one!

I use a standalone Netgear PS110 print server (supports 2 printers) - couldn't get along without network printing.
