WiFi PDA Meets Linux--Part 2 - page 6

iPAQ/CUPS Printing

This concludes our adventure into iPAQ/CUPS printing.

Even though the Linux/Samba/CUPS part of this article was pretty light, I think it is useful in the scheme of PDA to Linux integration. This is also a fine example of why people like Linux. Things are really beginning “to work”.

I hope that I've saved readers some time, because much of this set up is not intuitively obvious, especially on the iPAQ side.

Now that we have basic connectivity and printing out of the way, future stories will cover more exciting topics like VPN, Multisync, remote admin tools and streaming media.
