Hi Adam

Thanks for the advice on "use Client Driver". I used it to solve the 
"Access Denied" status in the windows "Printers and Faxes" status 
window. I think it was suggested by someone in this group - but also 
confirmed by the reference to it in "man smb.conf". It also probably 
stops me from uploading and/or downloading printer drivers to windows 
client - which is unfortunate. If you advise against using it - how do 
you avoid the "Access Denied" status in the "printers and faxes status". 
Do you just ignore it - or do you not get it for some other reason?

Thanks Adam
