    Samba and x64 Windows clients... how?

    Has anybody set up a Samba server and set it up to dish out 64-bit drivers? I'm struggling to get the drivers on there for Windows 7 and Server 2008R2 clients.

    It's to do with drivers this... I'm just struggling to get the drivers onto the server. If I install the driver locally, printing works fine.

    Are you using cupsaddsmb? We haven't tested on 64bit client.

    @linuxgirlie: That is what I have used in the past and it does work with 64-bit drivers if you can get them onto the server in the first place.

    The 'solution' I'm going to try today is to create a Windows 'printing proxy' which will connect to the Linux server via LPD. I think that this passes the users' credentials OK so it won't mess PyKota up.
