Most of these printers are network-attached, and some of the more recent drivers expect to be able to communicate directly with the printer, instead of talking through the CIFS service. Some of the drivers allow you to point it at a specific IP/hostname, however, others try to communicate automatically by grabbing the Port information from the printer. Since Samba doesn't truly give the port that the printer is connected to, this is proving to be problematic for a couple of my printers.

Which driver are you referring to? Does the driver not have options to
disable printer communication?
