wow, not a single taker on this one !!!
> hi all
> 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
> smbclient pointless
> Is it possible to use a netbiios alias and force the printers to list
> under the alias ?
> Any other suggestion welcome
