I'm using Samba 2.0.5a on Debian Linux.  I'm capable of printing through
Samba to the jet direct card of my HP LaserJet 4si, It prints
flawlessly, but I never see anything in the Print Manager on my NT
workstation, not so much as a flicker.  I'd like to completely stop
using NT as a print server, but I can not do that until we have easy
control of the print queue.

clip from smb.conf

        workgroup = MY_DOMAINNAME
        netbios name = MY_NETBIOS_NAME
        server string = %h server (Samba %v)
        security = DOMAIN
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = MY_NT_PDC
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        max log size = 1000
        socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=4096
        dns proxy = No
        wins server = XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

        create mask = 0751

        comment = bclab tech printer
        path = /tmp
        print ok = Yes
        printing = lprng

        printer name = test2
