For adding printer drivers you should grant permission to the user whom you
ll use as printer operator / Administrator.
Login as a above mentioned delegated user in remote machine / local and add
printer / driver.

If you put  "guest ok = yes" in config file at "print$" , it will consider
the connected user as a guest &  it wont validate credentials. In that case
even if you logged in as a privileged user , you will be treated as guest.
hence its not possible to add printer / driver as a guest.
remove guest ok = yes at print$.
Now when you login to remote windows machine / local and connect to cups
server then add drivers it will validate your credentials.
if already permission granted, driver will be successfully get added.
If you have any doubt on configuring printer server please go through
