I've read a lot of posts, how-tos, and FAQs and they all indicate what I want to do is extremely easy, but I can't seem to figure out what is going wrong
I have a printer connected to a Windows XP machine. It is shared. I used to print to it from my arch box using cups, but that stopped working for reasons unknown (I'm not sure when it stopped working and I've done a number of upgrades).
I've since reinstalled samba and cups and tried to start over.
Right now, I can do this:
[root@strongbad tmp]# smbclient -L teengirlsquad Password: Domain=[TEENGIRLSQUAD] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- Laser Printer HP LaserJet 1100 (MS)
So I can see the desired printer just fine.
When I use CUPS to install the printer, I've been setting the URI as:
but neither works. I always get:
E [22/Oct/2004:21:09:35 -0600] [Job 14] Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...ERROR: Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
I'm not sure where to look--I can print to this printer from windows boxen just not from arch.
I can't seem to find any settings to tweak on the windows side (it's XP SP2) and I'm not sure what else to try.
Can anyone help? I've read through the wiki and attached links and FAQs and haven't been able to figure it out.
Well I simply added a user specification to the printer URI and now it works fine. I feel a bit like an idiot but I never specified a user before.
I'm having the same issue only I can't work it through. I also had it working before and suddenly it fails.
Can you please tell me what user did you specify (a Linux or a Windows one?), and do I need to restart the services or anything like that?
