I am setting up my printer that is attached to my Ubuntu Box (9.10) so that I can share it with my Windows laptop wirelessly. The trouble I am having is that when setting up the connection to the printer on my Windows Box it gives me a pop up asking for the security options such as use anonymous account, use the windows logon name and password or use the specified account. I have tried using all 3 and neither works.

I am thinking I might have a permissions issue with cupsd.conf

I have combed through it but can not find what I am missing. Could someone please take a look and see what I might be missing?
