Samba file and print services
This software suite provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients. It allows for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based clients. It uses the TCP/IP protocol that is installed on the host server and, when correctly configured, it allows that host to interact with a Microsoft Windows client or server as if it is a Windows file and print server.
"I don't know if CUPS is configured to see Windows printers or not?
If this is a standalone networked printer, it depends on what protocol it is using to advertise itself. If it is connected to a desktop machine and declared as a Windows shared printer, CUPS does not automatically detect it. You have to install it manually using the smb: protocol."
