Hi all,
I am using mandrake 7.2 witf samba 2.07. I have problem with the client that
can't print.
There is no error comment show up on the client..just keep quite and "hang"
until I push
Ctrl+alt+del to abort the task (printing). Before I start print from
windows, I make sure the server is fine,
by print one file and goes fine. After I failed print windows soon I check
the server by type
lpstat and error comment arise, it say like this :
lpstat: Unable to connect to server: Connection refused,
I try to fix this  problem by reading diagnosis.txt and printing.txt that
come together with samba distribution,
but unfortunately it don't help. My printer is canon bjs210sp.

Here is may smb.conf :
   workgroup = dom
   server string = Samba Server %v
   printcap name = lpstat
   load printers = yes
   printing = cups
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 50
   security = share
   domain master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   domain logons = yes
   dns proxy = no
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes
   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   printable = yes
   create mode = 0700
   print command = lpr-cups -P %p %s # using cups own drivers (use generic
PostScript on clients).
   lpq command = lpstat -o %p
   lprm command = cancel %p-%j

Please help me...I really appreciate your help....
