    Your Corporate network includes 230 Windows 2000 computers and 18 UNIX computers. There is a print device attached to a UNIX computer, and you want to enable Windows 2000 clients to print to that device. You want to accomplish this task in the most efficient and economical manner. Which of the following steps should you take?

    a. Install Print Services for UNIX on a Windows 2000 Server print server.

    b. Install an LPR port on each Windows 2000 client computer.

    c. Install an LPR port on the Windows 2000 Server print server.

    d. Install Print Services for UNIX on the UNIX print server.

    e. Install an LPR port on the UNIX print server.

    f. Install Print Services for UNIX on each Windows 2000 client computer.

    Answer tomorrow

    @Cart - I struggled with the concept when using the MSPress book for the 210, but found when the 215 book addressed it, it was much better explained.

    If you've got them, read both about it.

    HTH :)


    EDIT: I'm gonna look really stupid if I get this wrong now :oops:

    Tricky question AJ.

    a. not mentioned that there is a 2K server on the network.
    b. they already have them and it still doesn't help if they aren't configured.
    c. same as a and b.
    d. wtf
    e. could be possible but I haven't a clue.

    I'm going with my original answer on the assumption that there is at least one W2k Server in an environment with so many W2k Pro clients.

    But then, assumption has always been a failing of mine, and is probably at the root of many failed Cert exams in general.

    Awaiting AJ's answer tomorrow with interest.

    Good question AJ

    A. There is no mention of a 2K server
    B. The LPR port is needed on the 2K clients to print to a UNIX queue
    C. Again no 2K server mentioned
    D. ?
    E. ?
    F. To install the LPR port this will need to be installed

    So I'll go for B and F :wink:

    Answer Time

    Choices a and c are correct.

    the best way to enable W2K users to print to the print device on a UNIX print server is to install a printer for that print device on a W2K Server print server and then share the printer. On the W2K Server print server, you should install Print Services for UNIX, install an LPR-compliant port, install the appropriate printer on the LPR port and then share the printer. The LPR port on a W2K computer impliments a print client for the LPD utility, which is the native UNIX print server utility. W2K clients will not need any additional software to connect to the print server shared on the W2K print server. The driver will be downloaded and installed automatically on a W2K client computer the first time that the client connects to the shared printer. Alternatively, you can install Windows Services for UNIX on each W2K client computer,install an LPR port and install the printer. However, this is not the best solution because it requires more effort to install the printer on all W2K client computers than to install it once on a W2K Server print server. Print services for UNIX and an LPR port are W2k componants; they cannot be installed on UNIX computers. UNIX print servers run the native LPD utility, and UNIX print clients run the native LPR utility.

    Here is some more info including printing on UNIX and W2K

    Reading this part of the question "includes 230 Windows 2000 computers and 18 UNIX computers." and there being no mention of a K server on the network made me choice the next best solution.

    I'd like to argue this point, I've only taken one MCP exam so if this is the sort of thing to come I better polish my crystal ball. :)

    I see where you are coming from Si but the questions are based on Windows 2000 Server, so I think it safe to assume that there will be at least one server in there somewhere. plus that's how M$ word the questions. :eek:

    That should have given it away eh, I was just reading it a question and never made the connection that they were posted in the 215 forum. Makes sense now, server questions in the 215 forum :silly
