    you just need to alter the cupsd.conf to enable remote administration.

    ah, got confused by that. Yeah. I've got the cups webadmin stuff enabled already - the ubuntu wiki already covers that.

    I'd didn't realise it was that simple.

    What/where do I need to change?

    Take a look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HO...-cups-browsing

    You need to run the enable_browsing and enable_sharing commands. You also need to alter the cupsd.conf file to allow access from the workstation that you want (they are htaccess style sections).

    Re: Mapping AD groups to Unix groups

    No. This is a separate issue - My issue is with Samba and setting up the auto-install of drivers. It is separate to the cups issue.

    Re: Mapping AD groups to Unix groups

    @localzuk: What error messages are you getting?

    I had a problem like this initially, however I had forgotten to give the necessary access to the /etc/samba/drivers directory IIRC. If it isn't working for 'administrator', try running it with the -U root switch instead.

    Re: Mapping AD groups to Unix groups

    I don't quite understand what you mean Ric_. I'm not getting any error messages. The 'Add Driver' button is simply greyed out. I have set print$ to /home/drivers and it currently is world read+writable.

    I am adding the drivers from Windows (or trying to) via the method described in chapter 21 of the samba tutorial at samba.org.

    I thought that you were using the cupsaddsmb command. Check out the man page at http://www.cups.org/doc-1.2/man-cupsaddsmb.html
