Printing to XP shared printer, strange problems


I'm printing to a printer shared on a WindowsXP machine on my LAN. I also know that my linux printing system works because I can print to an IPP shared printer via MacOS X (though admittedly that is a different protocol).

I have a password-protected user account on the XP machine.

In the KDE Add Printer Wizard ('s SMB Shared Printer) I can browse my workgroup as 'Anonymous' and see my print server computer, though I can't select it and see the shared printers because I'm not authenticated (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED).

However, when I enter my username and password in the browser I can't even see the computer! Same for the guest account (though there is a passwordless 'Guest' account on the XP machine, possibly conflicting?).

I suppose I could try to enter the settings manually, but I don't know how to format the Samba URL

Well, I can at least tell you how to format the smb URI:
Code:
smb://SERVER/SHARE

Thanks. I guess the workgroup goes ahead of the SERVER or is it not required if there's only one on the LAN ?

The workgroup is only required if the client and server are in different workgroups.
