Unhappy Printer sharing problem - Help me!!


My printer connect to a printer server, and this printer server connect to a network.
My RH 9.0 do a printer sharing using samba,
I think my samba setting is correct but when I test print in Win ME, there is no queue in corresponding lpq.
It's OK when I print locally.

So please help and tell me what's the matter to my printer sharing?

**I suspect the line in /etc/printcap:
if = ...... (I forgot the content but "if" is filter option)
