The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 4112
"no valid port" in Printer "Add Local Port" dialog
Last modified: 2012-01-09 10:45:32 UTC
After upgrading from Samba2->Samba3.0.23b it is impossible to create a new local port in the "add printer port" dialog. Error-msg: "\\perseus\ps2pdf is no valid port-name". Existing printers doesn't work, message: "The syntax of the filename, directory name or the disc-label is wrong". (free translated from german).
With WinXP it works, but not with NT4SP6a.
printing = bsd
path = /tmp
printable = yes
I want to get a spool-file in /tmp-dir.
This is probably fixed with a newer Samba version. If you still see the error. Please open a new bug with 'debug level = 10' logfiles of the new Samba version 3.5 or 3.6. Thanks!
