I have a computer running Fedora 17 with a Xerox Phaser 6360N attached to it.

I need to share that printer to a LAN computer running Windows 7. How do I do this? Preferably without Samba.

You can just use CUPS, without SAMBA –  ernie Dec 21 '12 at 18:08
    
@ernie How? I would prefer to just use CUPS. –  BenjiWiebe Dec 22 '12 at 17:06
    
Ack, sorry I missed you asking. Here's a little write-up on it: wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/… ; Basically, set up CUPS and then connect via the CUPS port. –  ernie Jan 1 '13 at 1:20

You should really use Samba and don't be scared of it. It served me very honest back in the old days.

You can start reading right away from: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/15/html/Deployment_Guide/ch-File_and_Print_Servers.html#samba-rgs-overview

I can bet things didn't change a lot since Fedora 15. And Fedora 17 Deployment guide doesn't exist, neither for Fedora 16. Probably because nothing has changed on this topic.

OK, I will try it... Hope it works. –  BenjiWiebe Dec 21 '12 at 13:55
