I recently upgraded from Samba 3.0.2a to Samba  3.0.11. I didn't change 
anything in my smb.conf file. 

But Now, when a  user logs on to my Linux server and access a Samba share, in 
the log file for  that machine there is always a message repeated twice: 

[2005/03/16  05:40:23, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_cache_reload(85)
Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost - Connection refused

As far as  I can tell, I do NOT have any CUPS lines in my smb.conf file. I 
have CUPS  running as a service on my machine (which I should probably stop), 
but I don't  want to make any printers available to network users. 

Any clues as to  why this error message is appearing now, and it never 
appeared with Samba  3.0.2a?
