As I understand it, CUPS and /etc/printcap don't mix.  Typically CUPS is
configured with /etc/cups/cupsd.conf (for the daemon, Web interface, etc),
/etc/cups/printers.conf for the printer definitions, /etc/cups/classes.conf
for the class (pool) definitions, etc.
I tried it this way to get the share to work. As it stands smbclient -L
firewall doesnt see it. And I inagine it should with cupsd running.


So is lpd running or cupsd?  You'll want the cupsd daemon running and then
you should be able to interface via a browser to http://<your.host>:631 -
similar to the way swat listens on port 901. Then you can define printers,
etc through the Web interface and watch what happens in /etc/cups.


Cupsd *is* running lpd is not , the only problem is I cant seem to get an
"Unable to connect to CUPS server" in /var/log/cups/error_log. and as far as
I cn see, its set up as it should be.
