Shared printer problem


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.

Thanks

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.
good luck.

Sorry that I wasn't more clear, I meant the listings from the windows machine. Have you seen this?\

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

Peacedog, thanks for all your help so far.

I'm running Mandrake 10, and when the computer is in 98, it behaves, but 2000 chucks a wobbly. It just doesn't want to do it, I get the user name and password thing too. But... 98 works.

Peacedog,

Sadly, that didn't work either... The apsfilterrc file did not exist. I think I have ran out of options.

Is apsfilter installed? Did you get any errors from lprsetup?
