How to configure printer ports on windows computers

 
Can xlpd2.1 be used to print from windows clients. The users manual only shows how to set up various UNIX machines. I'm just trying to share a printer with various clients over the internet.

Any OS that supports LPR client can be used with Xlpd. LPR client is included in Window 2000 and above. If your client machines are running previous versions of windows, you must install LPR client program such as ACITS LPR client before they can send print jobs to Xlpd. Please refer to the following URL for more information:

To setup a printer on Windows 2000 and above, please follow the instruction on the attached document.
