I read windows 7 and xp has issues using IPs.
Keep in mind that I'm not using the default smb.conf file...because at the time I was trying to narrow down what the problem was so I made a custom, bear minimum smb.conf file.
disable spoolss = Yes
Where do you see the disablement of the Usershare? The fact that it's not there in the conf file? I assume you mean the sharing of the user's Home directory?
usershare allow guests = yes
use client driver = Yes
The differentiating factor is that under normal circumstances, the NT/2000 client will attempt to open the network printer using MS-RPC. The problem is that because the client considers the printer to be local, it will attempt to issue the OpenPrinterEx() call requesting access rights associated with the logged on user. If the user possesses local administator rights but not root privilege on the Samba host (often the case), the OpenPrinterEx() call will fail. The result is that the client will now display an "Access Denied; Unable to connect" message in the printer queue window (even though jobs may successfully be printed).
If this parameter is enabled for a printer, then any attempt to open the printer with the PRINTER_ACCESS_ADMINISTER right is mapped to PRINTER_ACCESS_USE instead. Thus allowing the OpenPrinterEx() call to succeed.
This parameter MUST not be enabled on a print share which has valid print driver installed on the Samba server.
