9. Server Tools

This section highlights changes and additions to the various GUI server and system configuration tools in Fedora Core.

9.1. system-config-printer

9.1.1. SMB Browsing Outside Local Network

You can now browse for Samba print shares across subnets. If you specify at least one WINS server in /etc/samba/smb.conf, the first address is used when browsing.

9.1.2. Kerberos Support for SMB Printers

The system-config-printer application supports Kerberos authentication when adding a new SMB printer. To add the printer, the user must possess a valid Kerberos ticket and launch the printer configuration tool. Select System > Administration > Printing from the main menu, or use the following command:
su -c 'system-config-printer'

No username and password is stored in /etc/cups/printers.conf. Printing is still possible if the SMB print queue permits anonymous printing.
