Hello world,

I've dug through the docs and googled through the net, but I'm still
unable to fix my Samba (2.2.3a-6 for Debian) setup so that I can print
from my wife's Windows XP laptop.

The server is using Cups and I can print from the server and over the
net from my (Debian) laptop.

The XP box can connect to the server and browse files (both her home
directory and other shared directories).

But the XP box won't connect to the printer on the server.

I'm totally stumped. I set debuglevel=5 in smb.conf and watched the
log files, but I can't see anything that looks like an error.


Here's my smb.conf:

        debuglevel = 5
	server string = Zeus
	encrypt passwords = true
	obey pam restrictions = Yes
	passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
	passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
	syslog = 0
	log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
	max log size = 1000
	printcap name = lpstat
	domain master = True
	dns proxy = No
	wins support = Yes
	invalid users = root
	printing = cups

	comment = Home Directories
	read only = No
	create mask = 0644
	directory mask = 0775

	comment = All Printers
	path = /tmp
	read only = No
	create mask = 0777
	guest ok = Yes
	printable = Yes
	browseable = No

	comment = Samba server's CD-ROM
	path = /cdrom
	guest ok = Yes
	locking = No
	exec = /bin/mount /cdrom
	postexec = /bin/umount /cdrom

	comment = Epson CX3200
	path = /var/spool/samba
	read only = No
	create mask = 0777
	guest ok = Yes
	printable = Yes
	print command = lpr -P %p -o raw %s -r
	lpq command = lpstat -o %p
	lprm command = cancel %p-%j
	printer name = Epson
	use client driver = Yes
	oplocks = No

	path = /share/Music

                                        Be seeing you,
