In this particular setup, SAMBA & CUPS run on two different servers, say Server A (for SAMBA) and Server B (for CUPS).

What I want to achieve is that print jobs coming from SAMBA users (Windows clients) should be handled by SAMBA Server (Server A) and then handed to CUPS Server (Server B) to be printed by the chosen printer.

How to interface this SAMBA Server (Server A) and CUPS Server (Server B)?

How to make printers (attached to Server B) visible via SAMBA?
