Hello, all !
I'm setting up a print server with Samba and Cups. All goes fine, until I
try to upload the drivers from a Win2000 box to the Samba server: The
driver files are copied to the correct directory ([PRINT$]/W32X86/...),
and everyone seems to be happy... Until I click on the "OK" button: I
then get a message saying:
"The printer parameters could not be saved. Acces denied"
This is quite strange, because the file get actually copied to the
[PRINT$] dir, and the logs show nothing really wrong... Moreover, I've
done other print server using the same versions (The last one was
yesterday), and they work correctly.
So, I suspect something is done by (samba|cups|windows) when cliking on
the "OK" button, after the file copy, but I don't know what... I don't
know the internals of Samba (And the CIFS protocol).
How can I track down the problem ? Has someone here got this issue
For information, this Samba+Cups run in a Vserver
(http://linux-vserver.org/), and this should not be ignored as a possible
But I'd really like to know the basic step Samba performs when
remote-installing a driver, to look in the good direction. For example,
are there any communications between Samba and Cups at this particular
moment ? More important, if there is such communications, is the loopback
(lo) interface involved in any way ?
Thank by advance for your answers.
