Samba print share from RH9 to WinXP
Sorry for the cross post (i posted this under software)

Can anyone please help me, im going nuts tring to figure this out.

I have a Samsung ML1210 USB printer setup on my RH9 box (printing fine). I CAN print from other Linux boxes to this printer no problem. I can also shell out to DOS from my XP box and issue a print command to the printer (print /D:\\smith\samsung c:\textfile.txt) and this also prints no problem.

My problem arrises when i try to print to the "samba printer" i can connect but then i get access denied as a status. agghhhh

here's my smb.conf file

workgroup = EBUSINESS
server string = smith
encrypt passwords = Yes
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
guest ok = Yes
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
load printers = yes

comment = Home directories
valid users = %S
read only = No
directory mask = 0775
browseable = No

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No

path = /share
read only = No

comment = ML-1210
path = /var/spool/samba
read only = No
printable = Yes
printer name = samsung

Thanks for your reply but i have just found the answer. YIPEE

The problem was not samba but cups

as soon as i uncommented the following line from /etc/cups/mime.convs:
application/octet-stream application/vnd.cups-raw 0 -

and also uncommented the following line from /etc/cups/mime.types:

and added these lines to /etc/cups/cupsd.conf: <Location /printers>
AuthType None
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From None
Allow From All

restarted samba & cups and hey presto! we have printing (wow its only taken two weeks)

Thank You.
I had the same problem "access denied" the and the cups.conf fixed the problem

curious though how did you come up with the solution?

I bought a Samsung ML1710 because it stated it had Linux support. After a lot of messing around, I have it set up on a RedHat 8.0 print server(lpr). The only issue that I have now is trying to print to it from Windows 2000 and XP. The Windows machines can see the server and the ML-1710 print share. When printing from windows, I get a access denied and the printer starts printing garbage and won't stop till I turn the pritner off. I think have believe I have samba setup correctly(workgroup, samba usernames/passwords). Does anyone have any ideas?
