Re: Samba general question

I've been trying to share my printer that is connected to my linux computer to my bf's windows xp machine. The two computers are connected (by wireless) to a linksys router so they're on the same subnet. There isn't a chance the router could be blocking the connection, is there? The wireless is running on eth1 and I can ping from one machine to the other.

I also have vmware running on my linux machine so I can do tests locally. When I run "net view \\gmc" on my vmware guest I get a list of shares and can connect to the printer and see the files in the "testshare" share. If I run the same comand on my bf's computer I get access denied. It's not firewall related because I'm testing it with no rules set.

I'm including my smb.conf below.

        workgroup = HOME
        interfaces = eth1 vmnet1
        bind interfaces only = yes
        load printers = yes
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups
        guest account = smbprint
        domain master = no
        local master = yes
        preferred master = yes
        os level = 65
        comment = test path to tmp
        path =/tmp
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        writable = no
        comment = Linux printer
        path = /home/smbprint
        browseable = yes
        public = yes
        guest ok = yes
        writable = yes
        printable = yes
        printer admin = root
        use client driver = yes

I had some problems with printers at one time. After some research I found a solution that worked. I hope this works for you. Below you will find my printers section of my smb.conf

         comment = All Printers
         path = /var/spool/samba
         browseable = no
         public = yes
         guest ok = yes
         writable = no
         printable = yes
         create mode = 0700
         print command = lpr -P %p -o raw %s -r
         lpq command = lpstat -o %p
         lprm command = cancel %p-%j
