I have shared cups printers through samba.
I had to add a user and password
via smbpasswd. After I had added the username
and created a password via smbpasswd, iI looked in
the file /etc/samba/smbusers to be sure the username
The client is supposed to provide the username
and password when connecting to the printer.
Also I checked /etc/samba/smb.conf for any
permission issues, such as:
hosts allow = 192.168.1.3 10. 172.
security = user
passdb backend = tdbsam
Also, the printer share itself:
[hp deskjet 5600]
printer = raw
comment = HP DeskJet 5600
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = yes
printer name = hpdj-5650w
# Set public = yes IF you want to allow user 'guest' to print
guest ok = no
writable = no
printable = yes
print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r -Phpdj-5650w %s
lpq command = lpq -Phpdj-5650w
lprm command = lprm -Phpdj-5650w %j
lpstat command = /usr/bin/lpstat -t
#Required for XP?
; use client driver = yes
All worked as expected.

I have a HP4050 printer which is connected trought hp-jetdirect. It
works fine with cups, but I couldn't get it shared trough samba. It
shows okay to my vista laptop, but it laptop couldn't connect to it. I
can use cups so it's not a problem, but I would be interested to find
out why it didn't work trough samba as I could end up seeing something
similiar when at customer or somewhere else where using cups isn't an
Fedora version is 10. Samba and cups are latest available versions.
Also I didn't really get any helpful errors in selinux or samba logs
which would help solving this problem.
