Cups + Samba : Unable to get jobs for ipp://localhost/printers/prntest

Hello all !

I encouter problems with samba / cups for printing from client machines of the domain.

samba : 2.2.8a-0.1
cupsys : 1.1.20final-12.backports.org.1
clients : w2k sp4

The problem is extremely strange : when i log in on a client machine of the samba domain, and try to print, Windows refuses and i get an error message. I can then see in syslog the line :

Unable to get jobs for ipp://localhost/printers/hp - client-error-not-authorized

I saw on the cups website that this error could be related to the version of cups, and i decided to upgrade to the backports version. But this hasn't changed anything, since the problem persists ! When i set the smb.conf option "printcap name = cups", i get the error and the line in syslog. But if i "rem" this option with '#', i don't get this message. Windows tells me that printing if ok, but it isn't and i don't see any message about a printing spool in the logs. Something interesting too : command line printing always works (a2ps / lpr always works). And printing from another XP machine (not in the domain, only in the workgroup) works too...

I'm completely lost !!!

If anyone has a clue before i spool my printers by the windows of my room.... ;-)

Thanks in advance !
