something in kde made me "upgrade" to samba 4

now network printing fails

I need to share printer with windows, mac and linux machines; this has always
worked in the past (samba 3)

when a remote machine requests to print I get a cups error:

Quote:
"Session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE"


smbclient -L for the server machine reports:

Quote:
smbclient -L 192.168.0.3

Here is my smb.conf file:

# security = user

guest ok = yes

trying to print a file via command line with lpr the cups error log shows:

answering my own question, a deeper dive into the internet came up
with a possible solution

add to my smb.conf in global section:

Code:
        security = user
        guest account = root
        map to guest = Bad User


and to my printer share:

Code:
      force create mode = 0755
        force directory mode = 0755


I can now print from remote machines but I am not sure these
changes are a good idea ...

if anyone wants to comment on that please do - I'm waiting a bit to add "solved"
