10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: sboger on Nov 25, '03 10:05:30PM

we've been doing this in the linux world for years...

and we've made it one step better.... you can do it on Panther too..

share that printer using samba for the windows flunkies. now make the folder it drops the pdfs into a windows share...

bang, you have a centrally located office pdf printer..

10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer

How do you setup a windoze 2000 machine to use the printserver after setting up the queue? I drag the one off the share but it just gives you a status of "error". Macs print to the queue no problem.

10.3: Create a virtual PDF printer

If anyone has a solution to this, I would appreciate it too. Shared the PDF driver to windows clients, installed it on XP and told XP it was a postscript printer. (Apple 16/600 I think) All it does is pause the printer.
