Hi Alex, thanks for your input.
No thanks to my brain deadedness I got it to print from the feisty
client using cups. First had to edit the cupsd file on the print server
to allow connections! Doh!
As for the Samba printing, I just don't know. There is no doubt that the
feisty client has samba client stuff installed, otherwise it wouldn't be
able to browse the samba shares on the network. Had already tried
setting it up as a windows printer smb, and it is here that I can see
the workgroup, I can see all the computers, I can select the print
server, I can select the appropriate printer on the print server and I
can then choose the correct driver for it. Grrr! At least I have ipp
printing which can keep me going, I'd like to get to the bottom of the
samba printing though.
