Cups 1.3.7 access denied on a Windows domain
I'm trying to setup a new CUPS server to use with Papercut but I'm about to throw my toys out my pram as I can't it to work how I need it to :-)
The system is a fresh install of CentOS 5.3 with cups-1.3.7-8.el5_3.4, I have added the printer (which is connected via a jetdirect card) and I can print as many test pages as I like. If a computer is logged in locally I can add the printer via ipp with something like http://192.168.0.31:631/printers/mezz and it works fine.
If I try to add the printer when I'm logged into the domain as a domain admin I add the port then it asks for a username & password and the only way I can get round this is by using "root" which I don't really want. I know I could add a new user to the box to use but I'm not sure if this would confuse papercut as everyone would be connecting as root.
What I don't understand is this used to work fine on older boxes running CUPS 1.1 so I'm guessing it's something added when we jumped from 1.1 to 1.3.
I can post my cupsd.conf file if this would help
I had thought about using Samba to share the printers but this seems over kill & I had issue's with our old cups boxes trying this hence the use of IPP.
Any idea's before I go to the dark side & run it all off a Windows box ??
