Because all of samba activities are mapped to a specific user - even

those of 'public' or 'guest' are mapped to a posix (Linux in this

instance) account.

You can verify this by doing...

testparm -sv |grep guest

It should point out that even if it isn't configured in smb.conf, by

default 'guest' is mapped to a 'nobody' account which by default isn't

likely to have write access to your print spool directory for samba

which is why access is going to be denied.

I suppose you can either continue to not understand or try the

suggestion that I offered or even better yet, read through the

documentation in the link I provided - the official Samba How To - which

allows you to understand all of this for yourself.


Thanks for the reply Craig, I have guest = daisy so all logins will be used as guest.

I was under the impression that a public user could print to a printer if specified by smb.conf ? Is that not accurate?
