  • I am guessing you installed Windows LPD, install the LPR port feature on a Windows 10 client system.  This will get you the Windows lpq command.

    Execute

    lpq -S printerservername -P printsharename

    Notes to make this easier: do NOT have spaces in share names, do NOT use print drivers included in Windows since Linux does not support the spool file format needed.

    Stick with the LPD service on Windows.  I have a free one for you too if you do not wish to use the deprecated service.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Configure Windows Print Server, we can use Windows based client to test its function. Then, for Linux client, we may need CUPS in order to communicate with Windows Print Server.

  • Hi,

    Detail configuration on Linux is beyond the support scope on this forum as it is a third-party product discussed here is manufactured by a company that is independent of Microsoft. 

    Thank you for your understanding. If you have more question about Windows Printer Server, you may post here. 

    Best Regards,
