Printing-Related Configuration Parameters

There are a number of configuration parameters to control Samba's printing behavior. Please refer to the man page for smb.conf for an overview of these. As with other parameters, there are global-level (tagged with a G in the listings) and service-level ( S ) parameters.

Global Parameters

These may not go into individual share definitions. If they go in by error, the testparm utility can discover this (if you run it) and tell you so.

Service-Level Parameters

These may be specified in the [global] section of smb.conf. In this case they define the default behavior of all individual or service-level shares (provided they do not have a different setting defined for the same parameter, thus overriding the global default).
