     1This information will help you if:
     2 * you have a CUPS server in your network that manages printers
     3 * the printer you want to print to understands Postscript
     4 * you have the CUPS port from Paul installed
     5
     61. Create a client.conf file that holds the information about the CUPS server
     7 * create a file called ''client.conf'' in ''\cups\etc\cups''
     8 * add a single line to the file like this:
     9{{{
     10ServerName  printserver.mydomain.com
     11}}}
     12 * obviously substitute ''printserver.mydomain.com'' with the name of your CUPS server
     132. Query the names of the printers on the CUPS server
     14 * Issue the following command: ''\cups\bin\lpstat.exe -a''
     15 * This will create a list of printers that can be used on the CUPS server
     163. Print the CUPS test page
     17 * simply issue the following command: ''\cups\bin\lpr -P<printername> \cups\share\cups\data\testprint.ps''
     18 * <printername> is the name of a printer as shown by the output of ''\cups\bin\lpstat.exe -a''
