The samba logs show
[2009/09/07 00:50:53, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_connect(68)
Unable to connect to CUPS server /var/run/cups/cups.sock:631 - No such file or directory
though none more recently. I do shutdown cups nightly for a snapshot at
that time. I do not shut down samba.
Second, the packets seem to show the client trying to open \\Corn
\rawPrinter and the server replying
return code: File not found (pathname error) (0x0000002)
I am able to print to the printer from the client.
