[Samba] Unable to cancel print-jobs in cups-samba combination

Hi All,

I am basically working on a product in which print-server is one of its functionalities.
I am using SAMBA for sharing a printer which is connected to the hardware running Linux.
I am running SAMBA and CUPS to manage the printing-options on the hardware.

I am able to get prints when i give a print-command on the Windows PC which is connected via ethernet to the hardware.
Also I am able to "Cancel All Jobs" from the menu.

The problem is that  I am unable to process individual jobs to cancel, pause, resume, etc by right-clicking a particular job and select them to do so.

I doubt if the SAMBA that I am using is properly communicating the commands to the cups running on the hardware.

I will be grateful if I get any help in this regard.
Also if anybody has come accross this issue and managed to make for it I need the versions of CUPS and SAMBA used and any modifications need to be done in that.
