Unable to print to a shared usb printer on a WinXP box via Samba
I now have 3 computers on my small network with three printers
Computer 1) Mandriva Le 2006 running Samba with a Lexmark z22 usb printer which is shared and can be seen and printed from the other two computers
Computer 2) WinXP box with two USB printers, a HPpsc 1300 and a Lexmark z25
Computer 3) WinXP box with no printer
Computer #3 can see and access the shared partitions and printers on both of the other computer
Computer #2 can see the shared drives and the shared printer on Computer # 1 and can access it.
Computer #1 can see and use the Windows shares on the other two boxes but it can only see the two usb printers and is unable to use them. Trying to print a test Page on either of them causes the printer to send a carriage return and nothing else happens. I am running the shorewall firewall on the LInux box and have enabled it to allow Samba and CUPS access.
Been trying yo get this working for a long time, jusy hoping someone can help me out. And I have read the samba and cups documantation
