	I am trying to print files from one linux box (nubble) on another linux
box (capeblanco) using the Samba script smbprint. While it appears to me
I have everything set up correctly, obviously I am WRONG..because
nothing is getting printed..

 I have checked the print service from capeblanco by using the smbclient
-L capeblanco listing which shows the "lp printer". I have added the lp
printer to the printcap on nubble following the information in the 
/usr/doc/HOWTO/other-formats/html/SMB-HOWTO-9.html, which is
9. Sharing A Windows Printer With Linux Machines. All directories and
files shown there have been created  /var/spool/lpd/lp/.config

	With the debugging feature in the smbprint turned on and using the
command smbprint /etc/printcap. I have tried to print the printcap file
from nubble on the printer lp attached to capeblanco. The debug file
shows the following 

 server capeblanco, service lp
Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Server time is Sat Jun 19 20:47:58 1999
Timezone is UTC-7.0
Domain=[LIGHT] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 1.9.18p10]
smb: \>              

the connection is made as the log.nubble shows on capeblanco with the
following info

1999/06/19 20:47:58 nubble ( connect to service lp as user
nobody (uid=99,gid=99) (pid 2280)  

but thats were it ends....

The smbprint script just hangs there with the service open but nothing
gets printed...

I am still grinding on this but any help would be apprecitated..
This question is long enought so if anyone wants a set of the files I am
using I will gladly send them out...
