I just moved an Epson inkjet printer from a W98 host to a Linux host
running Samba 2.2.7. The Epson-supplied drivers give the ability to
control the printer remotely (head cleaning, etc.) and view ink
cartridge levels remotely from a Windows client when the printer resides
on a Windows host. When I moved it to the Linux host I lost that
capability.

Is there a means of accomplishing an equivalent effect with this new
configuration?
