I have installed a samba share for an Epson FX-85 printer. The smb.conf
file is shwon below:
# from (
   # Date: 2004/04/19 17:05:12

   # Global parameters
           workgroup = PENGUINIX
           interfaces = eth0, lo
           bind interfaces only = Yes
           password server = clyde
           guest account = guest
           log level = 1
           log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
           max log size = 1000
           timestamp logs = No
           wins support = Yes
           ldap ssl = no
           hosts allow = 192.168.2.

           comment = Epson FX-85
           path = /var/spool/samba
           printer admin = administrator, joec
           printable = Yes

When I log in, I can find the printer (listed as fx_85 in the printcap
file). I can open the printer from the W2K side of things and install
the required printer driver. When I go to submit a test page, nothing is
spooled to the print queue on the server. No job is spooled to the
document queue on the Windows platform. And I get the follwing errors in
the log.<windows_client> log file:

find service ::{2227a280-3aea-1069-a2de-08002b30309d} 

Any suggestions?
