Problem with Windows xp printing to redhat smb printer - not authenticating?
I cant seem to print from my Windows xp to a redhat 9 smb printer. The page to be printed just sits in the printer queue in Windows XP. To get it to work, I have to delete the documents, delete the printer and reinstall it. It then will work only for that session. Upon reboot, I cannot print from Windows xp to redhat 9 smb printer again unless I go through the steps above. If I try to print from a Linux host to the redhat 9 smb printer, I have no problems. Its just from Windows xp to redhat 9. I think, Windows xp is not authenticating properly and so redhat 9 is refusing the connection. I cant seem to understand this. The redhat 9 machine has a smb share of a windows folder which I can access automatically even after a reboot. It just fails on the printer. Any ideas? Thanks.
By the way I have the same user and password for the Windows xp and the samba server.
