I have a samba server acting as a domain member server providing
file/print services to our SME
As i want to provide users with a list of available printers for
installation, i need to give them a win32 shortcut to "\\samba-server\"
so they can see the available printers and install as required BUT...
doing so will also show them all of the available shares... not a major
issue but would rather just list the printers (i am using "browseable =
no" to hide all shares) but am now running into another problem.
I'm using a web interface to smbclient to allow staff to access the file
server from home.
Making all shares inviable effectively makes the use of the web
Is it possible to use a netbiios alias and force the printers to list
under the alias ?
Any other suggestion welcome
