I am having problems setting up printing over Samba.  I have a Windows
XP Professional client that can read other shares off of the linux
server (running Mandrake 8.2 with Samba 2.2.3a).  'smbclient -L
localhost' lists the Printer as a service and testprns says the Printer
name 'Printer' is valid.  I can see the printer in the Workgroup as a
service, but when I try and open the printer it says "Access denied,
unable to connect".  If I send a file to the 'Printer' from Windows, it
does not print, but I get a file /var/spool/cups/c000* (which is NOT the
file I am trying to print).  I have included the short version of the
smb.conf as given by SWAT.  The full smb.conf and a copy of the c000*
file, can be found at, if needed.

Thanks in advance,
