What is the standard fix for this problem

I have defined a printer under Windows NT Wks that points to a Samba
server, server is in security=user.

I login as a different user, who has an account on the Samba server, but
the printer shows up as Access denied, Unable to connect.

Is it the way I have defined the printer, or should I set up a virtual
server that has a valid guest account?
