And at the end of the day it turns out all this printer server problem
discussion belongs to MS Windows admin list, not Linux or UNIX admin list.
So, why didn't you, guys use Linux server instead of Windows server for

not be allowed to serve anything. It is the only system I know of whose
vendor tell you it is unsafe to run without third party software
