This is the second post about setting up a server for home or small business with SAMBA. If you haven’t seen the 1st post read it here :
Printer sharing with SAMBA
I have already installed HP Deskjet 3920 printer in my server machine and enabled sharing. (Open “Printing” application >> Right click on the printer, see whether sharing is enabled).
As we are giving anonymous access to printers first create a user account for remote print jobs
/usr/sbin/adduser --system --disabled-password smbprint
Then append the following lines to the end of the Global Settings.
printcap name = cups printing = cups
And now we’ll share the printers. Add the following code to the end of the file
[printers] browseable = yes printable = yes
