Is there anybody who managed to use a printer device inside of a jail?

A am building a jail with samba and I would like to share samba printer 
(printing via cups).

Master sees the printer device:
ulpt0: Hewlett-Packard DeskJet 845C, rev 1.10/1.00, addr 2, iclass 7/1
ulpt0: using bi-directional mode
. ..and /dev/ulpt0 exists, but not in jail and also cupsd in jail doesn't 
give me the list of devices to choose from.

I could do the same thing in FBSD 5.4 and it worked. I was also looking 
how to mount devfs from master to jail, but had no success.

Can anybody point me at the right howto or similar...?

Thank you.
