There are a gazillion ways to configure both CUPS and Samba. Be clear
on whether you need to support authenticated printing only, whether
you are using Kerberos and Samba for genuine "Single-Sign-On"
authentication, or whether people without credentials or with laptops
not configured for your environment should be allowed to prent, and if
so on which devices.
