winxp says "unable to connect..." to server attached printer

I am running SUSE 10.1 and have set up my box to function as a Domain controller for two Windows machines. (One XP and one 2000) I have set up my server attached printer to be shared. On the windows machines when you open up the printer it says "unable to connect to this printer access denied". If you tell something to print it goes through despite this message. Any ideas??

"Access denied" would indicate a permissions issue.

The client has permission to submit a job to the printer, but can not manage the printer, or print jobs..


a possible solution for you...

Hope that works for you
