Hello guys,

"use client driver = yes" helps because I have no more "access denied" errors,
unfortunately the printers does not print! :(

>From Windows clients the printer is still "paused" (I see that when I try to
print a document and I have to select the printer). When I send a document to
the printer no process appears in the print queue and no data arrive to the
printer (the printer's led does not blink).

I tried to add AllowUser in printers.conf but... no way out.

Any ideas?
Thank you very much,
