I have the following configuration:
P == U ---------------- W
P is a HP Laserjet, connected to U, which is an Ubuntu 10.04 desktop machine with a standard gnome setup from the live cd. I just selected the HP Laserjet in the gnome printer admin and it works, I can print locally.
W is a remote windows machine, server 2003, and --- is an untrusted connection.
I wonder if I can create an ssh tunnel between U and W, so W can print using U's printer service. Which ports will I need to forward and what kind of printer must I add then on the windows machine?
EDIT: I found out I can go to http://localhost:631/ on the U machine and there is the CUPS browser gui. I will try and forward port 631 to W, and add a printer on W like http://localhost:631/printers/hp
