Windows computers on my network are able to print to the printer I have shared with samba on my Suse 11.0 box, but the status message says “Access Denied, Unable To Connect” I would like to see the normal “Ready” status message.
I’ve read through some similar posts regarding this same issue and have made some changes to my smb.conf and cupsd.conf files.
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file.
