[Samba] Question on printing

Dear listmembers,
I have a samba-2.2.8a installation on a linux system printing on two remote
printers. The printcap is built up in such a way that local printers exist
that forward their data to the remote printers.
Additionally I have set up a file entitled "/etc/samba/smbprintcap"
containing two entries that refer to valid printers within the /etc/printcap
In /etc/samba/smb.conf I set printing=LPRNG.
Printing is functional. However, all the windows 2k clients say in the
printers dialog "access denied, unable to connect" when trying to gather
information on the two printers I tried to set up. Moreover, some of the
M$-drivers for those specific printers are non functional because they
obviousely expect some "feedback" from the printers they do not get.
Therefore I always use postscript printer drivers and ghostscript for
certain deskjet models (i.e. dj1220). This yields only sub-optimal results,
but it works.
Am I doing something wrong in my configuration?
Many thanks for your efforts in advance,
take care
