OK, let me ask this question another way, short and simple:
In a security=SHARE samba network, is there any way for a computer
outside the workgroup to connect to and use (not talking about "see") a
printer shared by samba on that network?
I've been reading logs, manpages, books, nothing I've seen deals with
that situation. This is a simple home network to which I want to
occasionally bring a company-owned laptop.
Please don't answer with questions about drivers, etc. A driver has
been installed on the outside computer (a Windows 2K laptop owned by my
employer). I have administrative rights on that laptop.
The error is "Access Denied". How can Samba be configured to get around
this given that security=SHARE is required?
I just can't believe this is that hard. What am I missing?
