Try printcap name = lpstat in the Global settings.


 >>  I've got a Red hat 8.0 machine running the latest "up2date" version of

 >>  I have all Windows 2000 Pro clients, most of them have all 5 printers that

 >>  downloaded from the server - I'm still working on that.)  All of the
 >>  printers installed show up as they should and all of the driver options
 >>  are
 >>  available.

 >>  But the "Printers" control panel applet keep reporting these printers as
 >>  "Access is denied, unable to connect" when you select one of the printers.
 >>  In addition when you double-click on the one of the printers to see the
 >>  "queue", nothing ever shows up and the same "Access is denied, unable to
 >>  connect" is displayed in the title bar of the dialogue box.

 >>  Since the print jobs are flowing, I'm not *too* concerned about them, but
 >>  I
 >>  would like to remove this message and be able to the print queues if that

 >>  possible.
