[vox-tech] sharing a printer with samba



I've never used samba before (happily i have no windows machines of my own).
However, i would like to share a printer so that my housemate can use it. I
can't get it to work and i suspect an access-control, problem. As far as I can
tell the smb server is not accepting jobs from the client. I've configured
smb.conf like so:

[global]
workgroup = home
netbios name = Samba
encrypt passwords = true
printing = bsd
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
lock directory = /var/lock/samba

[xerox]
comment = Xerox laser printer --- use this one
path = /var/spool/lpd/lp
printer name = lp
writable = yes
public = yes
printable = yes
print command = lpr -r -h -P %p %s

The server is running Ubuntu Gutsy with lprng spooler. Local printing on
the server works perfectly.

Here are the relevant log lines from a client (Ubuntu Gutsy with CUPS spooler):

E [26/Jan/2008:03:46:11 +0000] [Job 19] Unable to connect to CIFS host after (tried 3 times)
