Thanks for that web page, I had run into it a while ago and completely forgot about it.
I ammended my printcap to include the entry : # APS2_BEGIN:printer2 # - don't delete start label for apsfilter printer2 # - no other printer defines between BEGIN and END LABEL Canoni850|bjc800:\ :lp=/dev/lpt0:\ :sd=/var/spool/lpd/Canoni850:\ :lf=/var/spool/lpd/Canoni850/log:\ :mx#0:\ :sh: # APS2_END - don't delete this To handle all the raw printing ( ie. from windows ) And ammended my smb.conf printers section to [printers] comment = Printers path = /var/spool/lpd browseable = no printable = yes public = yes # create mode = 4777 [Canoni850] comment = Canoni850 path = /var/spool/lpd/Canoni850 browseable = yes printable = yes # printer driver = Canon i850 [lp] comment = FreeBSD printer browseable = no printable = yes However I still have the same problem. The weird part is that on the XP client when I go to print a test page, nothing shows up in the printers que, but no error comes up either. Here is what I got in log.smbd with log level at 10 [2003/08/12 23:40:55, 5] lib/util_sock.c:print_socket_options(111) socket option SO_SNDLOWAT = 2048 [2003/08/12 23:40:55, 5] lib/util_sock.c:print_socket_options(111) socket option SO_RCVLOWAT = 1 [2003/08/12 23:40:55, 5] lib/util_sock.c:print_socket_options(111) socket option SO_SNDTIMEO = 0 [2003/08/12 23:40:55, 5] lib/util_sock.c:print_socket_options(111) socket option SO_RCVTIMEO = 0 [2003/08/12 23:40:55, 10] printing/nt_printing.c:update_c_setprinter(368) update_c_setprinter: c_setprinter = 0 [2003/08/12 23:40:55, 6] param/loadparm.c:lp_file_list_changed(2302) lp_file_list_changed() file /usr/local/etc/smb.conf -> /usr/local/etc/smb.conf last mod_time: Tue Au [2003/08/12 23:40:55, 3] smbd/oplock.c:init_oplocks(1214) open_oplock_ipc: opening loopback UDP socket.
