Print Server Overview
The Print Server feature for Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET enables you to share and access printers over the network. Print Server uses the Common Internet File System (CIFS). Which is an extension of the Server Message Block (SMB) file sharing protocol. CIFS enables a network-enabled application to access and manipulate files and directories on a remote server in the same way that the application accesses and manipulates files and directories on the local system.
Windows CE provides a Web-based network configuration utility that enables you to configure your print server, and manage and share user permissions. This sample utility is located in the %_WINCEROOT%\Public\Servers\Sdk\Samples\Natadmin\smbprint directory.
The following table shows operating system design information for the Print Server feature.

Note To support printing, in your configuration, include the USB Printer Class Driver (SYSGEN_USB_PRINTER) feature for USB printing, and the Parallel Port Support (SYSGEN_PARALLEL) feature for parallel printing.
