I am using Samba PDC LDAP box as a file and print server on our local
The printer is loaded and I can print on it, using the usual way:
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
printing = lprng
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = no
guest ok = no
writable = no
# public = yes
printable = yes
I can print to this queue from an Windows XP Professional workstation,
as well as from other systems (Windows 98,...), but I can not view the
print queue from the XP.
I can view the queue from W98, remove a job, but, XP says when I try to
Open the Printer, on its top bar:
lp on server Access denied, unable to connect
Does anybody else have the same problem? Can somebody help me solving it?
In my experiments I used the XP and the W98 computers as a workgroup
members, but the same problem happens with a Windows 2000 Professional
workstation as a Domain member.
Not forgetting to mention: defining of lpr, lpq and lprm in the smb.conf
in the usual way did not help.
