Printing from Linux on a Windows Print Server

I would like to printout from SAP on SLES to a Windows Print Server.

Therefore I installed on Cups a printer queue with the target: lpd://WINSERVER/printersharename

But I don't get a connection. Even the "telnet SERVER 515" gives me a "connection refused". The port 515 is open in the firewall.

Do I have to configure anything on the Windows Print Server in order to get it listen on port 515?

Thank you,

Hello Julian,

If your SAP server on linux and Windows Print Server are on the same network, why would you need to define print queues on Linux. If the printer is defined on Windows Print Server, you could setup a printer definition of type U: Berkley Protocol and it should work.
