Hello samba gurus,

Here is my issue, it may actually be a windows issue
but because samba is in the mix I feel like it should
be presented here. Here are the three principle

a) pdcbox - A windows 2000 server box functioning as a
PDC (in compatibility mode)

b) printbox - a SuSE linux box running Samba 2.2.3a
functioning as a print server (with cups) and a WINS

c) clientbox - An XP Pro machine trying to print.

I am logged into clientbox as user "tim", which is a
user in my Win2K domain. When I attempt to print or
look at my available printers I get an "access denied"
message. If I open up printbox in Windows explorer it
asks me for a username and password. If I type in my
own username and password it fails. If I type in
another username and password (just another user in
the domain with the same priveledges as myself) it
works, after this I can print. What gives? I have
verified that my account is valid and no different
from the one that works. 

printbox is configured thusly:

	workgroup = somedomain
	security = domain
	password server = pdcbox
	map to guest = Bad Password
	character set = ISO8859-15
	os level = 0 
	local master = yes
	preferred master = no
	domain master = no
	wins support = yes
	DNS Proxy = no
	guest account = guest
	printing = cups
	encrypt passwords = yes
	comment = All Printers
	path = /var/tmp
	create mask = 0600
	printable = Yes
	postscript = No
	browseable = No
	guest ok = yes

	path = /var/tmp
	read only = No
	create mask = 0600
	guest ok = Yes
	printable = Yes
	postscript = Yes
	printer name = phaser3
	use client driver = Yes
	oplocks = No

Any help would be appreciated.
