"This how-to describes the process of setting up an
intranet based print server using Ubuntu server. By using CUPS
SAMBA and SWAT the final product is a webgui based solution to a
headless print server.
"This How-to has been cobbled together from assorted other
how-tos and forums by me after recording as best I could the method
I used after googling the various problems I had along the way. It
is primarily based on
"which is excellent but a little dated.
"We will use PRINTSERVER for the name of the computer and
USERNAME and PASSWORD where appropriate. Please use your own ones
as necessary. While installing Ubuntu server select openssh and
LAMP server using the space bar when requested (these parts can
also be installed into an existing Ubuntu installation but that is
outside the scope of this how-to). Ensure that the PRINTSERVER has
access to the internet and is not locked out by your firewall or
something silly (is it plugged into to your network?)."
