Printer Permission problem with samba


Hello. Well my problem is as follows: I have a linux/windows network setup with samba and everything works fine (i.e. I can see my linux box and navigate the directories from windows) but the printer I want to use in windows will no work because windows complains that access was denied when trying to connect to printer. I was thinking of trying a chmod or other on the printer port, but I'm not too sure if that will do anything, as I can print from my linux box and windows seems to be using my "max" account...Any ideas? Thanks.

hello mates, hope this helps you both out.

http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/...g_with_windows

it's a debian mini how to, but, it should be generic enough to help.
good luck.

Yes, thank you, but the adduser command on fedora does not take options such as --system --disabled...
