I have a printer set-up and working correctly on my Linux machine
running Fedora Core 1. It is set up as a local printer called printer.
I set it up thru the graphical printer configuration utility.
I am trying to set it up as a network printer from my Windows XP machine
using Samba. Here are the lines in my smb.conf file:
encrypt passwords = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server
printcap name = /etc/printcap
dns proxy = no
load printers = yes
max log size = 50
security = user
os level = 20
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = yes
public = yes
printer = printer
comment = Epson Stylus Color 860
On my windows machine, I was able to add the printer as a network
printer and then
it asked me to locate the driver, which I did. Everything seemed fine
that point, but when it shows the printer, it shows access denied,
unable to connect.
When I try to print a test page to it, nothing happens and the Windows
box is completely
There is this line in /var/log/dell5100.log:
lpr: unable to print file: client-error-document-format-not-supported
My Windows mahcine is named dell5100, so they are talking.
Any ideas what this means?
