Hi. Install the printer locally. Then set up a new local port in the form:
\\myserver\myprinter Make sure the myprinter you are sharing is not set up
with a driver. For example type redhat-config-printer, select a name
'myprinter' then select a port, but for the driver select "Raw Queue".

Subject: [Samba] printing from xp


I've installed Samba 2.2.7a on a Red Hat 9 machine.  This machine is 
also running VMware with Windows XP as the guest OS.  The XP virtual 
machine can access the Linux host's shared directories, but not the 
printer.  The printer is an Epson Stylus Color 860.  It works fine in 
the Linux host.  In the XP guest, I can see the printer in the add 
printer configuration wizard.  But when I try to install the printer on 
the XP guest, it says that access to the printer is denied.  The printer 
portion of my smb.conf is:

         comment = All Printers
         path = /var/spool/samba
         guest ok = Yes
         printable = Yes
         browseable = no

What else do I need to check?  Thanks,
