Windows Server 2008 supports numerous physical interfaces, including Universal Serial bus (USB), IEEE 1394 (FireWire), parallel (LPT), serial (COM), Infrared Data Access (IrDA), and Bluetooth ports; Windows Server 2008 supports network printing services such as lpr, standard TCP/IP ports, and the I nternet Printing Protocol (I PP) , which allows clients to print via HTTP traffic, either over an intranet or via the World

Printer Formats The printer driver creates a job file using one of two interim formats, as follows: Enhanced Metafile (EMF) — A standardized, highly portable print job format that is the default format used by the Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 print subsystems. The printer driver converts the application data into an EMF file, and the printer sends it to the print server, which stores it in the spooler. The spooler then uses the printer driver on the print server to render the job into the final PCL format understood by the print device.
