Conclusions and Final Notes
One great thing about printing from your GNU/Linux machine to your Windows 7 machine is this: you don’t have to be logged in to the Windows 7 machine. The LPD service will run as long as your Windows 7 machine is on. If your Windows 7 machine is off, your print job will normally stay cued in your GNU/Linux machine, and the job will print as soon as you turn the Windows 7 computer on.
I have had this setup running for over a week, and it has worked perfectly every time. I have not had a single error. The system has seamlessly handled the most complex printing jobs that I could throw at it. Now you can setup up your own GNU/Linux-to-Windows 7 printing network.
The demonstration video below shows you all of the steps that I have described in this article.
