Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

Print problem to a windows printer
I hope there is a few that can help me with my print problem.
I tries from my SuSE linux pc to print to a windows2000 connected server. when I test the connection that everything looks OK and it is no complains when I try print but it is never working.
OK, here is a little more details...
When I use the command "smbclient -L win_pc -U user%password" then I get the following back
Sharename Type Comment
--------- ---- -------
IPC$ IPC Remote-IPC
print$ Disk Druckertreiber
ADMIN$ Disk Remoteadmin
C$ Disk Standardfreigabe
Domain=[XXXX] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager].
I have also tested with find smb and there is no problems either, I find the win_pc without any problems.
When I print a test looks it okay to me, I use this command
Opps. I missed a point. Looking at your smbclient output, I notice that all you show is the print$ share for the MS print drivers, not the actual printer. (In fact, all you show are the default system shares. I believe that these are, generally, reserved for MS network activities, not user connections.)
Perhaps you should go to the PC and set the printer there to "share" Then it would, at least, be visable to the Linux system.
I still think you'll need to go to the CUPS configuration setup and define the printer and the smb path to it. But if the PC is not sharing the printer, then you will, of course, not be able to use it.
Oh, one other thing: On the PC side, you might also need to go to "Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs -> Add/Remove Windows Components -> Other Network and Print Services" to see if "Unix/Linux print support" is installed.
(The "Windows Components" item is in the left margin.)
