Hello, I've been struggling with this problem for the last week and I am close to getting it to work, but I seem to be missing something.
I currently have a HP DeskJet 870Cse hooked up via lpt0 to FreeBSD 5.1 i386 machine. I can print text files via lpr with no problem. This is done through apsfilter. I have been able to print from other BSD machines on the network. However, when I try to print from my Windows 2000 Server machine, it fails. I have Samba installed on my print server and I can see the printer from explorer on my windows box, but any attempt to access them gives me a security error. I have tried using the wizard for setting up printers and it would complete successfully, however the test page would not print. The windows queue would state that the printer is either busy or was not allowed to print there. I suspect that there is some security protocol in Samba that I need to remove, but I don't know what that is... The logs from samba and the spools are empty. my /etc/printcap file: # APS1_BEGIN:printer1 # - don't delete start label for apsfilter printer1 # - no other printer defines between BEGIN and END LABEL hp|hpdj/unspec;r=300x300;q=medium;c=full;p=letter;m=auto:\ :lp=/dev/lpt0:\ :if=/usr/local/etc/apsfilter/basedir/bin/apsfilter:\ :sd=/var/spool/lpd/hp870:\ :lf=/var/spool/lpd/hp870/log:\ :af=/var/spool/lpd/hp870/acct:\ :mx#0:\ :sh: # APS1_END - don't delete this lp|windows|raw:\ :lp=/dev/lpt0:\ :sd=/var/spool/samba:\ :lf=/var/spool/samba/log:\ :af=/var/spool/samba/acct:\ :mx#0:\ :sf:\ :sh: my smb.conf file: [global] workgroup = WORK server string = printer hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127. load printers = yes printcap name = /etc/printcap printing = bsd guest account = root log file = /var/log/samba.log.%m max log size = 50 security = share socket options = TCP_NODELAY interfaces = 192.168.1.45 domain master = yes preferred master = yes dns proxy = no load printers = yes use client driver = yes show add printer wizard [homes] comment = Home Directories public = no browseable = no writeable = yes [printers] comment = HP DeskJet 870Cse path = /var/spool/samba browseable = yes public = yes printable = yes I have tried multiple combinations of variables in my smb.conf but have been unsuccessful. I've tried using some of the combinations found in various webpages, but it seems that most are out of date as their parameters for samba are deprecated. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. --Andy Clements _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
