Vitualbox 4.14 on laptop running Fed FC16, this one, with guest OS winxp 32 bit.
Samba server on another machine also running FC16.
No matter what I've tried I cant get a printer to function printing from windows.
I always get the cant find printer message, check name etc.
SElinux is permisive on both machines, and firewall ports are OK.
When this machine was dual boot with win7, I could print from it, but not from the VM.
Since win 7 played silly wotsits with the mbr, I gave it the boot, so fresh install of FC16.
At the moment winthing on the VM cant see a printer, but can see all other files and the cup-pdf, but cant print to it. the current priner section of smb.conf on the server is :-
load printers = yes
cups options = raw
printcap name = /etc/printcap
printing = cups
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes
writable = yes
printable = yes
Stylus-Photo-R285|EPSON Stylus Photo R285:rm=g8jvm-lap.localdomain:rp=Stylus-Photo-R285:
Cups server is set to share and allow printing from the internet, and I can print from linux on this laptop.
My printer is an Epson Stylus Photo R285.
What do I need to put in the smb.conf file so that winxp on the VM will see the epson printer on the server and successfully print to it ?
