[Samba] Samba + Cups + Filter Access

	Just did it. 

	I've downloaded the adobe postscript drivers from adobe and it
worked just fine using IPP. (taking samba out of the way)

	So I know that the problem is not in cups, it could be :
CUPS-Samba-Postscript drivers or samba itself.

	Now I'll try to install the printer using the cups samba
postscript drivers. The problem is that I really don't know how to add a
new printer using those driver files. I'll look over the net.  

	If it works, then the problem is somewhere in samba.

	Any tips? I can't believe that nobody ever had this problem.  :(

Thanks alot
Thiago Lima.

What you can do to troubleshoot your problem, narrow your search, and to
for assistance in the right place is to re-create the scenario with an 
attempt to print to CUPS via IPP instead of Samba. This is a more direct

route and takes Samba out of the picture. If the problem is ameliorated
maybe the issue is Samba related. If printing via IPP doesn't ameliorate
problem then you know for sure that Samba is not the place to look.
