i have a WinXP machine on a laptop trying to print to a SAMBA+CUPS configuration on my linux box.

the spool file managed to get generated, but nothing comes out from the printer!
i have been reading up but the configurations on samba seems right...

below is my configuration.. it does look all right to be..

You can add a account in yous samba configuration to print on your windows box. Try "guest" in samba panel.

i would not want guests to be able to print to my printer...
is there a way to get this working using only valid users?
