Are you using samba or what? :)

You could try creating a "local printer" that
uses TCP/IP in the port settings in windows,
or if it's a samba-related issue make the printer
a browsable item.

all that it's done

now in windows xp i get acces denied the connection could not be stablished

but i can clearly see the shared printer....

the windows 9x can see the printer and print to it but only when i do the browsing command no teh linux box... otherwise i'll never see the print dialog...

also i recall dosn't matter if i've enabled or disabled iptables by doing iptables -F
