[Samba] Cups and Samba Access Denied

I should have mentioned I changed /home/spooler to 777 when I first starting
getting the error. I also put guest ok = yes but same issue. I am really
starting to think it's my version of cups.

Hi Jared,

You have already removed "print command" and "use client driver" lines
I would suggest you try to make it "guest ok = yes"
And also make /home/spooler chmod 777
I have the access denied message before and once I made the "printers" share
directory 777, the message is gone with the wind, worth a try

Good Luck, and Happy New Year
