Hi all... I have a shared printer on my W2K box. I am trying to connect to it from my Linux box. I see the printer fine. When I do the printer setup I pick the right printer and try to do a test. It comes up with a Username and Password box. I have used every username and password that has Admin rights to that windows box and every time login fails. It continues to pop up the Username and password box. I have even used the Admin username and password on my linux box and still no go.
Has anyone had this same problem and if so how did you fix it. I worked on it all night and still could not figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.
Distribution: Slackware, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X
I think your problem may exist in users. I believe you need three accounts, a linux user, and a samba user, on the linux side, and a user account on the windows machine, all with the same name and password. Hope that helps.

Yep, I read that before I posted here. It was very helpful and it helped me get links to the printers, but everytime I try to print it pops up that username and password box. It is one of the most pathetic problems I have seen. I wanted to prove this point by installing a Knoppix 3.6 on another system. Within Knoppix I setup the networked printer that is on the Win98 box and wow, I could print with Knoppix without a popup box.
Now, my question is.... What in the hell is Suse's problem when it comes to networked printers. This pisses me off. I would hate to have to switch from Suse over this, but I really like it, but if I have to physically have a printer hooked to my linux box, what is the point. Hmmm
