You might want to try sharing it as a CUPS printer. Try searching the internet for "share CUPS printer
with  Windows" or something similar.

I'm having trouble getting my printer to share to my
other Windows
computers on my network via Samba.  The funny thing
is that I had this
set up a coupla years ago on FC2, and it was a piece
of cake.  Now,
there's nothing but problems.

I turned on Samba and browsing for printers in
Samba. My Windows
machines can now see my Linux machine via the
Network Neighborhood, but
not the printer.

I turned on printer sharing in the
system-config-printer utility, but
that doesn't seem to make a difference.

Here's the printer part of my smb.conf
      comment = All Printers
      path = /var/spool/samba
      browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to
      guest ok = yes
;       writeable = no
      printable = yes
      public = yes

Any tips?


what does your cupsd.conf look like?

<Location /printers/Epson>
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
AuthType None
Allow from All

Interestingly there's no </location> at the end of the file. (that part
was automatically generated by system-config-printer.  So, does that
entry even makes sense?

what about the permissions in cupsd.conf with regard to the individual printers? what does your samba log say. what does your cups log say?

The error log says:
I [12/Feb/2006:04:02:21 +0100] Sending browsing info to ffffffff:631

is it possible that there is an ipv4 vs ipv6 conflict here?

also, i f you try to print through samba to cups from a windows machine, what does the error log show in both samba and cups?
