Thanks for the reply. The Samba server is setup as a PDC, and my computers
and users authenticat to it properly. I don't have the XP firewall running
on any machine. Printing is great, controlling printing is the problem for
me. I'll set my logging to 10 in a little while and post back to the group
the log as Jerry suggested.
