    Re: printer sharing

    here is my smb.conf file:
    Code:
    #======================= Global Settings =====================================
    [global]
    
      workgroup = HARRIS 
      server string = Samba Server
      printcap name = /etc/printcap
      load printers = yes
      printing = lprng
      log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
      max log size = 0       
      security = user       
      encrypt passwords = yes   
      smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
      socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    #============================ Share Definitions ==============================
    [homes]

      valid users = %S       
      create mode = 0664

      guest ok = no        
      writable = no        
      printable = yes       
    # This one is useful for people to share files
    [tmp]              
      comment = Temporary file space
      path = /tmp         
      read only = no

    does your printer section look like mine?

    Re: printer sharing

    everythings working great now. I don't know what it is. I copied just the printer section which was already almost the same as mine except for the guest access line and that didn't work, so then I used your global options edited with my preferences ofcourse. I think the problem may have been
    printing = lprng

    i didn't have that line.

    thanks for the help!

    Re: printer sharing

    err looks like I've gotten ahead of myself here. It let me add the printer in xp and install the drivers everything worked great until I actually go to print something. Now I go to print somethign and nothing happens. So I open up the print queue or whatever its called and it says can't connect to epsonsty on ALFRED access denied. So heres my samba config excluding the unneccesary file shares. I hope someone can find something wrong with this.

    [global]
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
    printing = lprng
    encrypt passwords = yes
    workgroup = AGAR
    server string = file/print server
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    netbios name = alfred
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
    load printers = yes
    printcap name = /etc/printcap
    max log size = 0

    [printers]
    path = /var/spool/samba
    comment = All Printers
    browseable = no
    printable = yes
    public = yes
