I have configured cups (1.1.18) on a Suse 8.2 Pro Linux server.
I have also configured samba (2.2.7a), and joined a domain.
I have created printers with cups and declared them to samba with
cupsaddsmb command.

All seems to be ok.

I can print from my Linux server.

But, when I want to print from ny windows2000 station:
- I can find my linux server
- I can find and connect printers which are declared
- I do not succeed to print (the test page or another document). The system
says it is not able to print.
I do not see the job on the cups web interface.

May someone help me ?
Is there a problem rather with cups or with samba configuration ? What is
the point of locking ?

I executed cupstestppd on cups-samba printers ppd files. All values are
I looked at log files, but didnt see anything that helped me.

So if someone has some idea to help me, the idea would be welcome.
