Server 2008 - Mac print server

Sep 22, 2008
I work in a mixed environment OSX 10.6 and Windows 7. I want to consolidate the print servers into one Server 2008 R2 server for both types of clients. The Windows are fine, simple print sharing scenario.

For OSX users, from what I understand I need to setup the printer as an LPR port. When I do that, I am able to go to the OSX client, go to add printer, click IP, I can enter the print server name and the queue name (manually) and it prints ok.

I have a few problems though, first of all, is there a way to have the printer show up in anyway so that I can just double click on it from the OSX client and have it connect like a bonjour share. Second, I can enter any queue name on the OSX client and it shows as connected even if it isn't a printer at all.
