  Inside Samba: Windows Sharing for the Mac
Subject:   OSX and Samba Printer Sharing to Windows

I'm having issues printing form Windows (any machine) to an OSX shared printer (Stylus 1290). It's set up correctly as far as I can tell. I reckon it's similar to the issue where you can set up Samba correctly to share directories, but need to enable user access via the users panel in system preference. My issue being I need to set up guest access to the printer to make the printer broadly accessible. Not being able to enable system users for access from windows means this seems impossible. Unless anybody knows of a work around, or a fix? So much for some of the instructions I've seen on the web. ie. simply activate windows sharing, and click 'printer sharing'!


If you can offer any help, that'll be great.


Thanks


Barrie
