Re: samba printing
In order to authenticate to my printer, I must enter a user account.
On my windows box, I share the printer to user "Guest", and then on the linux box I use
You may wish to try with the guest account and the null password.
Hope it helps,

my laptop I ask it to you.
I've got (damn it!) an Epson printer connected to a Windows XP box. The
printer is shared with the other computers of the workgroup. One of these
computers is mine, which dual boots (with same IP) on linux and windows.
I've got samba (smbd and nmbd) running and if I do
I get the smb prompt and can put stuff and get it printed. However, when I
try to configure cups, after I finish I get the following message from the
Printer State: processing, accepting jobs.
"Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...ERROR: SMB
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"
Device URI: smb://MATEMATICA11/EPSON82
Furthermore, from the samba log file for the print server I get messages

Does anybody have any idea what's going on?
By the way, I installed the "unix print service" or something like that on
the windows machine.
