Hi, I want to know how can i config CUPS to distribute printers' drivers to windows clients by CUPS and Samba with [print$] resource. I can't  use web interface because when i select administration button appears the next message: "Upgrade Required
Se requiere una actualización a una conexión segura. Si está viendo este mensaje en su navegador, entonces éste no soporta actualizaciones de encriptación HTTP. "
I have in global secction of samba: 
   printing = cups
   printcap name = cups
   printcap = cups
   use client driver = yes
   load printers = yes
   disable spoolss = yes
 
And the resorces: 
 
[printers]
   comment = All Printers
   public = yes
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
   printable = yes
 
[print$]
   comment = Drivers de Impresoras
   path = /usr/share/cups/drivers
   browseable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   read only = yes
   write list = root
