Re: Set up Network Printer on ThinOS

In my experience, the SMB printing through a print server has been much more reliable than LPD.  Just remember, with ThinOS, the SMB share names CANNOT have spaces in them.  Also, the path needs to be"\fqdm.whatever\PRINTSERVER\SHARED-PRINTER".  If you are configuring from WMS, it will automatically place the first single "\" and the "\" between your print server name and the shared printer name.

"\\" paths will work if you set that manually in the ThinOS interface, however trying to use "\\" in WMS settings will result in them getting stripped and replaced with "\".  That's why I suggest using the FQDM with the single "\".

Also, make sure you use the same spelling for your printer driver as it has in the print server (spaces are ok here).
