Agree with that. I have the same configuration, using Fedora as
printserver. Shares are OK and can be seen and used by Windows XP. The
printer can be seen by XP, but not used (acces denied). Strange enough
there is a folder Printer/ Faxmachines, which has an icon to the
printer and I am able to print a testmessage in that way.
Any help would be appreciated.
