I asked this question about 4 days ago and no one has replied yet, so 
sorry for asking
again... Brett, it seems you can do exactly what I am trying to do... 
when I right click
on the background of my server i get a message that says "The server 
[servername] does
not accept remote requests" I have searched google with a hundered 
different combinations
of this message with cups, samba, linux all thrown in for good 
measure... Do you or anybody
know what it wrong with my configuration?
