I previously set up a Red Hat 8.0 box and configured SAMBA printing using lrpng (sp?). However when I try to do the same thing using 7.3 and the CUPS printer manager I cannot get anything to printer on the Windows printer. The share name for the printer is "//server/canon6000" and the Deice URI is:
The Device is entered as "Windows Printer via SAMBA"
I get among other messages "Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds..."success" or sometimes "host not found".
I have linked to a /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb file and have the host addresses entered in the /etc/hosts file. I have spent days on this and am getting nowhere!
Any good document ( I have read the SAMBA documentation) to try or can anybody recommend "the cure"? I will be forever in your service!!
