Hi, I've got an HP printer on USB port on Freebsd 4-Stable box. Printer is on /dev/ulpt0. Installed cups and printing from BSD is fine.
Had samba installed and working great for filesharing. Now introduced an all printers share to share this printer. Printer is browseable from windows machine. When I install this printer on a Win2K machine (and use local drivers) I get "Access Denied, Unable to Connect." Unlike some other people's experience I cannot print to the printer despite this message. I've found lots of references to others having this problem on BSD and LINUX on the web but no resolutions. Of course, BSD questions is where all the really clever people hang out so someone here is bound to know ;-) I couldn't find any resolution in the mailing list archive so does anyone know of an answer or is this a bug in operation between Winblows and Samba? Below is the global and printers sections of my smb.conf. This was generated by webmin but I do understand and have written smb.conf manually in past.
