Re: Samba and printer question.



I have not tried it on vista yet.
But I have a vista machine coming in about
a month :(  I will have to wait til then to test it.
Hopefully, some people on this list will test it with
vista and report their findings sooner.

Cheers,

JD

All worked as expected.

Did it also work on vista? Or just from linux or win xp machine. Another thing is that the printer is allready set in cups and samba should automaticly make working the printer share. It actually makes the share and I can see it from my windows machine after logging in to samba server, can also access files shared on normal fileshare like users home directory.

Your solution is nice, but it goes past the cups which isn't very elegant even if it's working correctly. And one to try if the share still doesn't work in windows xp in addition to vista as there was some changes to smb-protocol in vista. I Have found some people complaining about same problem, but haven't find any solutions yet. Which was why I asked in the list if someone else would have encountered it and maybe found some other workaround than just using cups directly.
