Greetings Admins,

We use samba 3.0.7 and cups 1.1.20 on debian woody to serve 
point'n'print to XP clients.  This works great, much kudos to the samba 

We are seeing high load on the printserver and we would like to know if 
it's possible to split the samba and cups installation into 2 separate 

How do I configure samba to detect a cups installation on another host?
If this is a case of RTFM then kindly point me to the doc :)


My current config on the samba install is '--with-ads' '--with-ldap' 
'--enable-cups' 'LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/ssl/lib'
