I'm new to the list, so at the begining I'd like to say Hello to all of You.

I'm using Samba 2.2.3a and rather cannot upgrade it to new version. I want
to set up sambafax (http://www.purpel3.com/sambafax/ ) tool to allow my
windows users to send fax.
Actually my smb.conf looks like this:
security = share
guest ok = true
guest account = test

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/lpd/lp
browseable = no
printable = yes
public = yes
writeable = no
create mode = 0700
directory = /tmp

# shared folder
path = /var/folder
volume = Share
writeable = no
guest ok = true
comment = Shared folder
browseable = yes

...and it's all that I needed till now.
When windows user print on fax printer, he is authenticated as test and
cannot get the notification about his job.
I know that I should change security=user, but the problem is that my
windows users work on terminal servers and are authenticated by radius
server and have dynamic passwords (generated by token).
What should I do to get the correct username, and allow only selected users
to print on that printer.
Best regards
