Thanks for your reply, but i am still having a problem implementing this.
I will explain what's happening here,
I have created a samba share on my linux print server for a printer and created smbuser - administrator, smbpasswd - luck
I have no problems using this printer from my first win2k client using the same username - administrator, password - luck.
The problem is using my second win2k client - un - administrator, password - timboy. As you said i tried mapping the printer folder on this client but when i browse to create a map for my shared printer, i can only see the name of my linux print server , not it's content (i guess because the linux machine doesn't grant access to samba share as credentials un - administrator, password - timboy)
In this case how do i map my printer and connect to it using the samba username and password that i have created for the first win2k client when i dont see the printer itself.
Thanks , awaiting your reply
