1st check the share name of the printer on command line by running:

PHP Code:
smbclient -<ip/hostname of the win7 machine
after getting the printer share name add this by running system-config-printer on debian and follw from below:

PHP Code:
New printer -> Give any name of the printer -> Windows printer via samba -> (here give the printer share nameafter smb://

e.g. /192.168.0.100/HPLaserJ HPLaserJ is the share name of the printer on 192.168.0.100) -> Give username and password to access the machine -> select printer type or manually add the ppd file if you have downloaded the driver from the printer website -> select the model -> apply
