Spooling a print job to a Windows box
Apologies for this just-barely-debian-related post.
I've done the usual googling, but haven't turned up anything. Running
smbclient -L 10.0.0.101 on my debian box reveals:
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

Epson Printer Epson Stylus COLOR 740 ESC/P 2
epson740i Printer EPSON Stylus COLOR 740
So it seems that the epson740i printer is indeed shared. But if I run
DEVICE_URI="smb://10.0.0.101/epson740i" smbspool 1 ndw title 1 none .bash_profile
ERROR: cli_session_request() failed...
ERROR: Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...: Success
I've tried all the combinations username/password/workgroup that I can
think of in the DEVICE_URI.
Does cli_session_request() failed shed light for anyone?
