Services Utility: Print Server for Macintosh Service

Display Name (?): Print Server for Macintosh
Short Name (?): MacPrint
Executable (?): sfmprint.exe
Library (?): None.
Depends On (?): None.
Supports (?): None.
Description (?): Enables Macintosh clients to route printing to a print spooler located on a computer running Windows server. If this service is stopped, printing will be unavailable to Macintosh clients. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
OS (?): NT4 Server, 2000 Server, Server 2003, Vista Server
Startup (?):

Explanation (?):

The print server for Macintosh service allows a Windows server to mimic Macintosh printer shares. This lets Macintosh clients browse the server for printers from the chooser, and lets them print through it as it would a Macintosh server. If this service is disabled then Macintosh clients will not be able to browser or print through the Windows server. However, if you do not wish to use this service then it suggested that you uninstall this feature through the add/remove components dialog rather than disabling it.
