I have a Debian box hosting a printer, and a Win 98 box wanting to print to
said printer. When I don't log on to the local NT domain, printing works fine
(presumably cos it uses the username 'nobody'). When I am logged on, the
printer refuses to print until I open a share on the same machine. Username
and password are the same on the NT domain and the Debian box.
Is there some way of specifying that Win 98 uses the 'nobody' username all
the time when printing? I've tried using '\\nobody at machine' and
'\\machine.nobody'. Any ideas?
I've got green eyes, red hair, and I'm left handed. A hundred
years ago, I'd have been considered in league with the Devil.
