[Samba] After some print jobs, samba server doesn´t accept conections.

I have RH 7.2, with Samba 2.2.1a, and LPRng printing system. I have two
printers, HP DeskJet 1220C and HP LaserJet 5.

When a user send many jobs to the printer after a short period of time the
server sends a message that the server is not accesible or is not connected
to the network, but any other user can do it, again, after some jobs sent to
the printer the server doesn´t accept any connection from that client.

I read the FAQ of LPRng, and it says that you must change the number of
ports in your lpd.conf file, but it has the correct number of ports.

==================obtained from www.lprng.org =============================


It appears that most RFC1179 implementations do not check for the exact port
range 721-731, but only that the connection
originates from a reserved port, i.e. - in the range 1-1023. You can extend
the range of ports used by LPRng by changing the

    originate_port=721 731

value in the defaults (LPRng/src/common/defaults.c) file or in the lpd.conf
file. I recommend the following: 

    originate_port=512 1022 <--- I have this numbers.

What could be my problem??
