We are using samba 2.2.1a.Due to various other reasons we couldn't able
to upgrade to higher version of samba.
Samba 2.2.1a has problem in printer driver uploading,downloading and
printing.Basically it works fine for one set of printer drivers and
doesn't work for other set of printer drivers.
We have analysed the DEBUG log and the ethereal capturing.Samba is not
failing anywhere and windows is not sending the expected messages in
case of non-working drivers.
I am finding it really difficult to analyse this failure.
Can anyone give detail information on how printer driver
uploading\downloading works?Especially on spoolss pipe.(I know Microsoft
doesn't give any specification),but can I get any information from samba
