Sorry, folks, somehow my smb.conf was omitted from last night's post here it is again but corrected:
Hello, list -- I trust this is the correct list for this post. I have been wrestling literally for days with SAMBA/Win2K remote printing. Here is the architecture: qty 1- FBSD SAMBA Server PDC qty 2- Network printers (an HP LJ2100 with Built-in net card, and a Canon 6500 printer/copier also with built-in nic. qty 50+ - Win2K Clients SAMBA file sharing works great, and after much trial and error, so does the printing but only to ONE printer -- the one identified as 'lp'. I can successfully print from the FBSD box to each remote printer in the printcap with: lpr -Pprinter testfile.name . This tells me the printcap is working as are my print queues. But when trying to print from the Win2K clients, I only get output to one of the printers (the one I define as lp). I think what is happening is that the lp: definition in the printcap defaults to /dev/lp which then goes to the aforementioned printer... Can someone please set me straight? I am about to lose my mind, my wife, and probably some other important things in my life! Here is printcap file: # APS1_BEGIN:printer1 # - don't delete start label for apsfilter printer1 # - no other printer defines between BEGIN and END LABEL lp|mainoffhp2100|pcl3:\ :rp=raw:\ :rm=192.168.1.114:\ :sd=/var/spool/lpd/mainoffhp2100:\ :mx#0:\ :sh: # APS1_END - don't delete this # BEGIN PRINTER2 lp2|mainoffcanon|copier:\ :rp=raw:\ :rm=192.168.1.20:\ :sd=/var/spool/lpd/mainoffcanon:\ :mx#0:\ :sh: # PRINTER2 END And here is smb.conf: # Samba config file created using SWAT # from 0.0.0.0 (0.0.0.0) # Date: 2003/08/11 17:40:53 # Global parameters [global] workgroup = myowndomain netbios name = NETBIOSNAME wins support = yes name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast server string = Samba PDC running %v encrypt passwords = Yes passwd program = /usr/bin passwd %u passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *Retype*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *Enter*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *Retype*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *passwd: *all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully* unix password sync = Yes log level = 2 log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 50 socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192 logon script = netlogon.bat logon drive = Q: logon home = \\%L\%U\.profile domain logons = Yes os level = 64 preferred master = Yes domain master = Yes printcap = etc/printcap printing = BSD print command = /usr/bin/lpr -P%p -r %s lpq command = lpq -P'%p' lprm command = lprm -P'%p' %j load printers = yes show add printer wizard = yes total print jobs = 100 lpq cache time = 10 use client driver = No [homes] comment = Home Directories read only = No browseable = No [printers] printable = yes guest ok = true writable = no print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r %s path = /var/spool/samba browseable = no [mainoffhp2100] printable = yes printer = lp printing = BSD print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r %s path = /var/spool/samba printer admin = various users writeable = yes public = yes [mainoffcanon] printable = yes printer = lp2 printing = BSD print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r %s path = /var/spool/samba printer admin = various users writeable = yes public = yes [print$] path = /usr/local/samba/printers browseable = yes guest ok = yes read only = yes write list = various users [EducationOffice] valid users = various users comment = Ed Office path = /usr/depts/EducationOffice writeable = yes [Transcripts] valid users = various users path = /deptdata/Transcripts writeable = yes Thank you in advance for your help! __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
