Printing to Local Printer.

This is an easy one but have no clue how to start. I am connecting via a PC running XP using putty. I have a printer attached to my PC. I need to print stuff. How can I set up this printer?
Thanks !Smilie

The stuff I need to print are files on the AIX machine.

Folks 84 views and no word. It is doable at least?

so this printer is not a network printer is is on lpt port of your machine?

One way I have had good results is by doing this command:
1. set shared for director on desktop machine
Code:
mount -v cifs -n serverip/username/password -o wrkgrp=domain,fmode=755 /sharename /localmountpoint

Now you will need to be root on the AIX server to mount the file system and have cifs_fs for AIX installed.
But once you do you just mount a directory from you desktop to the AIX server and the copy what you want to print to it and print like normal through standard windows printing.

Just another option.
