I am pulling my hair out because I had a windows box printing on a Ububtu computer but the hard drive on the ubuntu crashed and now I can't get it to print again. I've been talking with the local LUG for a month and they can't seem to help any.
I've played with smb.conf (a) but the LUG says that it appears to be proper.
If you look at it you will see that it is the sample smb.conf with a few minor additions. I added the 'opening ports' section under 'global' and I added the 'interfaces' under the 'networking' section. I'm not to sure if that one is right. It says 'interfaces = 192.168.0.2/24 eth0'. Is the '24' right?
Could you help this poor old soul?
