    Need help with printer sharing.


    I have Fedora running Sumba Server for a network of WinXP computers. There is a Canon BJC-3000 printer on the Linux PC, it is shared but I'm having trouble accessing it from my Windows PC's. I keep getting access denided messages in Windows print manager. How do I setup the printer so my XP PC's can use it?[/b]

    i have the same message on my network here for the n/w printer, can you see the printer in the environment? if so can you just try printing to it.
    IN my setup i get that message but can still print to the printer though..i dont know how, still havent figured that one out!!!

    If the samba security settings are set correctly how about looking at hosts.allow and hosts.deny in /etc.
