THANX :)

Just what I have been looking for :)


It's working like a charm, but one question remains:

Will every program send its data through cups ? Or how do I configure them, so that they WILL print through cups all the time??

Maybe that is one hell of a silly question, but I'm really at a loss there.

I followed this guide but for some reason I'm getting an error, it is:
Code:
"Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE"


Does anyone know what this error means and how I would go about fixing it? Thanks in advance for your help.

Dude!
I have the same problem!
My printer is a _see topic_, and it's shared on my brothers computer(winxp).
Have tried using the "unix printer thing" as mentioned before in this thread, but that did'nt work.

Code:
"Remote host did not accept data file (1)"


Did also try with just the samba-setting from the beginning of this thread, but only got the

Code:
"Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE"


message..

Any suggestioins?

this normally happens when you forget to enter username / pass in the string, wihile trying to connect to the printer.

Let me first say thank you for writing this and I cited you when I put this in with my easy install of Gentoo Linux. In reference to using a username, I found it easier to do
Code:
smb://guest@workgroup/host/printer
and found that this will work 100% of the time, especially since its hard to get the username and password for windows to work since most people like me use first name/middle name/last name with spaces. So I used "guest" and it worked great on both my micro-desktop and laptop.

Thanks again,
Kevin

You may have already figured this out, but if this has anything to do with your username:password try using
Code:
smb://guest@workgroup/host/printer
by using guest I have had 100% success with it.
