I have a bit of a problem, however, I am not
sure if it has been solved, or what.
RedHat Linux 7.2
samba version 2.2.1a
Client machine is Windows NT 4.0
(Service Pack 5.0)
Printer: using an NT driver on an NT machine
configured to print to the port-'file'.
I am trying to print a file on a samba file server
to a "printer". When the file is stored on
an NT machine, I get the dialog box that asks
for output file location. If I print the file from samba,
I don't get the prompt and printing fails.
I have looked through the mailing list and haven't
found anything simluar. I also looked at the
recent fixes to samba, but haven't seen anything
that deals with this problem. Sometimes, NT seems
to write a file called "Ne01:", could that be part of the
In both cases, the win32 function 'StartDoc' return 1,
it just doesn't display the dialog box.
