The first question is: Ist it possible to print from WinXP to Linux without CUPS? What I found is based on CUPS.
Samba is runing and Windows can see the printer but not connect. A description how to would be nice.
Here’s how to print to a Linux server using IPP protocol
and here’s how to print to a Linux server using SMB protocol
Both of those seem to have cups in the mixture. I don’t know how to print in Linux without cups. Hopefully some others will answer that.
