Description sean o'malley 2006-09-07 09:26:00 UTC
I am trying to restrict the user of a print share with valid users. 

I am using samba 3.0.23c on suse linux 10..

In my smb.conf file i have:

#Visitor Printing
comment = Visitor printer
create mode = 0700
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
public = No
valid users = mlprint
force user = visitor
writable = No

I compiled with ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/samba --with-pam  --with-included-popt --disable-cups --with-syslog

I am using pam to authenticate. 

What happens is i get login denied if I try to use the mlprint user. 
The error in the logs is: 
2006/09/07 10:19:05, 2] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(571)
  user 'mlprint' (from session setup) not permitted to access this share (vslp_1)

It doesn't work from either WinXP or the smbclient program, if I take out the "valid users" option, it works fine. I checked for a space after the user mlprint and there was none. 

Anything else you need to know just ask. I am kind of stuck on this.

does it work if you write

valid users = %D%wmlprint
