I have the following setup :
- A Linux Debian Jessie server, with cups and samba installed.
- A LAN with Windows clients, mostly Windows Seven (and two XP).
I am trying to share the cups-pdf printer to Windows 7 clients.
At first I wanted to provide printing drivers from Samba, and did a
huge mess in config files, without getting a working configuration on
So I cleaned up my smb.conf file (see attachment).
I can browse the server using "\\192.168.0.250" from Windows clients
explorer. I see my file share, and the printers.
When I try to add a printer using right click and "connect..." from
the Windows explorer, I get a "Windows can not connect to printer"
error message, with 0x00000057 as error code.
I have searched for this error code : it seem to happen when the
printer has already been installed on the Windows client, and drivers
have become "messy".
But : I get the "0x00000057" error with every Windows Seven client,
even if I didn't mess with it before.
My guess is : I left something about Windows drivers in samba or cups
config, but I can not find where.
I see no error message in logs.
Thanks for any help.
