LPR printing from Linux to a Windows printer


  • I would like to print from a Linux client over LPR to a Windows printer. In that case the job owner will be published in the queue with the IP addres of the client. Fro account I like to use the username but the Ip addres has to be removed since DHCP is used what will result is differnt user names.

    Is thre a way to remove the IP adres from the job owner paramere when printing in this way?

  • No.

    Okay, yes, but you will need to use some other LPD service.  Windows LPD services creates the user name with the IP.
