    In my senario. i have few Brother Printers MFC-8460, I gave them the IP Address but to share them across i need the Print Server to manage them. since i am using SAMBA file server so i decided to use the same for print server for Windows clients.

    Have you read:
    http://opensuse.swerdna.org/susesambaprint_1.html

    This should work well if there are only a few clients. For larger networks
    you should read Chapters 21 & 22 of the official HowTo:

    samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/

    You will find additional information in:

    samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba3-ByExample/

    # 6 lines in [global] enable print serving
    printing = cups
    printcap name = cups
    printcap cache time = 750
    cups options = raw
    load printers = yes
    use client driver = yes

    [printers]

    For IPP, you really do not use Samba. However, it will do no harm to add
    those lines to your smb.conf.
