Description of problem:
It is impossible to get a samba print-server to work correctly with
cups version cups-1.1.20-11.6. The problem is mentioned also in the
Samba Bugzilla bug 2199. The problem seems to be samba related and
connected to the rights management here. If you are member of the
samba printing admin group you can print. see further information in
the URL above.

Could you please help here?

print and receive printer drivers.

printer drivers from Samba.

Hi Jay, what is the status here?
Comment 4 Jay Fenlason 2005-02-15 12:06:15 EST
I've made an unofficial, not-officially-supported build of   
Samba-3.0.11 for RHEL3 avaliable at   
Please try it and report whether it solves your problems.  If it   
does, I can try to get it included in a future update release.
