AW: APW is missing

Hello gentlemen,

I have faced exactly the same problem as described:
- smb.conf settings as mentioned
- connected as root
-> but APW is not seen.

I worked around this by explicitly defining a printer admin group and
adding, even root, to that group.

Maybe this helps
Best Regards

Check a level 10 debug and make sure that the Printers folder is not 
opened as an anonymous user.
