> I have SAMBA and I'm using CUPS for printing. I want to allow printing from few SAMBA's hosts. I've edited cupsd.conf (Allow/Deny hosts) but still every machine from SAMBA can printing. It seems that CUPS ignore cupsd.conf (Allow/Deny lines) when I'm printing via Samba. WHY ? What shoul I do to limit access to Cups ?

use the host access limitations from samba.
see http://de.samba.org/samba/docs/man/smb.conf.5.html#HOSTSALLOW

samba is accessing cups from localhost. dont know if cups can somehow
know which host is printing via samba.
