Hallo Laurent,

i have a similar problem, here.
When trying to add a new printer via apw from a winXP32, the driver=20
files get copied over to print$ on the ubuntu 10.04 Server (Samba 3.4.7) =

afterwards it says "Permission denied" And the driver get not =

Where do you geht the filenames, the drivers needs?
as i cant use rpcclient to register the drivers from commandline.

best regards
