FC3 USB Printer & Samba

Post by lovswr »

Well I posted this to the samba mailing list about 2 weeks ago. Not ONE reply so I thought I'd give it a try here :D

Hello, I have a Canon S400 USB printer. It works on my FC-3 box just
fine. Trying to get it to share with a WinXP PRO & Win98SE box is the
problem. I have searched via google & tried many different configs but
none of them work for me.

I can get to the point where both boxes can "see" the printer, but then
I get the dreaded, not allowed, password incorrect. I am using share
level access & both boxes can see their own home directories correctly

have to use the actual ip address) but I can not "connect" to the

Below is my complete /etc/samba/smb.conf file as created by SWAT. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

workgroup = CONCERT_ATL

log level = 5
log file = /var/log/samba/matrix1.log
