I seem to be having this problem with printers.. on the Windoze 98 clients
the network printer appears as "offline".

However, from the cups web interface I can print test pages fine,
and also from the command line on the server.

I have these messages in my smb logs..

[2002/05/20 12:46:33, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_queue_get(776)
  Unable to get jobs for ipp://localhost/printers/acc1hp2200n - client-error-not-authorized
[2002/05/20 12:46:33, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_printername_ok(281)
  Unable to get printer status for acc1hp2200n - client-error-not-authorized

and this section in my smb.conf:

printing = cups
printcap name = cups

   comment = Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
   guest ok = yes 
   printable = yes

Can anyone tell me what im doing wrong? Im still not sure if the problem
lies with my CUPS or SAMBA configuration..

thanks in advance for any help
