Thanks Jerry -- for your assistance.

The solution was precise but i am facing an auhentication issue.

When I use the "use security = user" in the smb.conf then its promting for a username and password.

Is there any way for skipping this check.

Better not to set this if you want to manage print queues
from windows clients.
