I have a laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 and my basement computer running Windows 7. I want to be able to access files on on both computers from either. I also want to be able to print from my laptop to the printer attached to the basement computer.
I finally got printing working. Then I tackled the filesharing. I finally get filesharing working and now, I can't get printing working again, even though I've gone back to the version of smb.conf that I had when I was able to print. So here is what I've got.
<-> Printer State
When I look at my printer properties in Ubuntu I see the status:
Idle - Unable to connect to CIFS host after (tried 3 times)
Cups Error Log
When I look at the Printer Error Log, I see: (partial)
Printer log extract.txt
I can ping the IP address of the windows box 192.168.0.5
, but when I try to ping the name owner-pc
it fails. This would lead me to beleive that the there is a name resolution problem. That is where I get stuck.
Where do I go from here?
