Network Printing via Samba

server configuration:

To enable sharing of printers you have to modify the sections [global] and [printers] like shown below:

# If you want to automatically load your printer list rather 
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this 
   load printers = yes 

# CUPS printing.  See also the cupsaddsmb(8) manpage in the 
# cupsys-client package. 
        printing = cups 
        printcap name = cups 
        comment = All Printers 
        path = /var/spool/samba 
        browseble = no 
        public = yes 
        guest ok = yes 
        writable = no 
        printable = yes 
        create mask = 0700 
        printer admin = root, @lpadmin 

To access a shared printer you have to use a device URI like:
