Letting windows access my printer through network


Hey all,

I'm having trouble getting my printer working on the network. I'm connected to two other Windows computers. My printer works fine through CUPS with linux, but I don't know what to do to get windows users to use it. With samba I made my group "linux-desk", which I can see in Network Places on the windows comps, but when I double click it, I can't access it. I enabled sharing in the printer preferences (using Fedora core 1). I imagine I'm missing something in the Samba config (adding a share, user config, something?).

Thanks for any help,

Edward

Well.. u r problem is first of Samba.. try to set security level to shareleverl in samba.. and then share ur computer through samba..

My advice to just give a look to samba documentation..
or simple way google "smb.conf" and see the example for u!
