Samba Printer Share = no permission


I've configured Samba to share files and my printer with Windows clients. File shares are working fine. When I view the printer shares through XP, I can install the driver, but am thereafter unable to access the printer share, and am denied permission to access the printer.

I'm using F7, and have disabled selinux.
Other than changing the netbios name in smb.conf, the file is default.
Here is my printer config:
Code:
[printers]
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        browseable = no
        guest ok = no
        writable = no
        printable = yes
Thank you.

"guest ok = no"

Are you using an ID that's valid to Samba on your Linux machine?

I have authenticated and matching user accounts for samba and XP, if that's what you're asking.

Edit: I decided to try setting guest to yes, and that had no effect.

Well, it was just a thought. I haven't done the "print from a Linux Samba share" yet, as my printer is connected to the MS machine. But, I did go far enough in messing with Samba to watch a movie from a DVD share. Of course, in that case, I had to login to Samba to open the shared drive. Wish I could be of some *real* help. Good luck!

Quake, thanks for your assistance.

Here is my testparm output. Can anyone tell me if there's anything wrong with it?
Code:
root [/var/log/samba] $ testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[printers]"
Loaded services file OK.
Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

[global]
        workgroup = HOME
        netbios name = RED
        server string = Samba Server Version %v
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        cups options = raw

[homes]
        comment = Home Directories
        valid users = %S
        read only = No
        browseable = No

[printers]
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba

slowcoder,
I've just had another thought. I have a second Linux machine that I setup to use the CUPS server on my main one. Here's my CUPS config on that one, if it helps. It was a real nuisance to figure this crap out. It's from http://localhost:631/ on my second machine. Note the URI below:
Quote:
Description: SamsungM
Location: Location Unknown
Make and Model: Samsung ML-1740 Foomatic/gdi (recommended) on 192.168.0.6
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.
Device URI: ipp://192.168.0.6:631/printers/SamsungM
Also, I've found a link that might help, if you haven't seen it yet:
http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/...-Printing.html

FWIW, here's the printers section of my smb.conf on the CUPS "server".
Code:
[printers]
   comment = All Printers
   browseable = no
   path = /tmp
   printable = yes
   public = no
   writable = no
   create mode = 0700

Ok, the only differences in your config and mine were the "create mode", and the "path". I tried both of them without success. Thank you, though.

Anyone else wanna give me a shot? Pretty pretty please ... grovel ... (licking shoes) ...
