I'm facing problem in taking printouts from NT4 service pack3 client
with samba server (version 1.9.13) running on Sun 4.1.3 , while the
printouts from WIN'95 clients are comming perfectly fine.

Here are the contents of my "smb.conf" file

   printing = bsd
   print command = /bin/sed 's///g' %s | /usr/ucb/lpr -P%p
   lpq command = /usr/ucb/lpq -P%p
   printer name  = ps,ps4,ps2
   load printers = yes
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   guest account = nobody

   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/public
   user = sanjayn
browseable =  no
   printable = yes
   public = no
   readonly = yes
   create mode = 0700

However, if I make the printer's public then there is no problem.  Can
anyone  advise...
