Description Need Real Name 2001-11-01 16:08:37 EST
Description of Problem: The new printer configuration does not work with a
simple default samba configuration

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a printer with printconf-gui
2. Configure samba with default samba config of loading printers from printcap.
3. Attempt to print from windows machine

Actual Results:
Windows machine is given access denied error Even though samba shares are
accessible and printer share is viewable

Expected Results:
Samba is able to get printer information from printcap and connect to print

Additional Information:
I have reproduced this problems on 2 separate machines and also discovered
that you can work around the problem by hand editing the printcap to print
using raw print mode. Samba logs attached.
