Hi All,

	We appear to have a CUPS problem that is breaking our (LPRng)
based printing.

We now have loads of errors of the form:_

[2007/03/08 12:21:36, 0, pid=23877] printing/print_cups.c:cups_cache_reload(85)
  Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost - Connection refused

filling up the log.smbd file

We using
in smb.conf, and there isn't (nor has there ever been) any CUPS on the

Any attempt to connect to a printer (e.g. Start|Run|\\server\printer )
results in an XP error message 'Incorrect Function'.

This is Samba 3.0.24 compiled from source on Solaris 9.
