Exclamation Problems with printer


Im having a little problem setting up my printer. im running redhat 9 and this is what i have done so far

went to ControlCenter =>Peripherals=>Printers=> selected CUPS, then clikced on administrator mode typed my root password. Then I seleted add a printer and followed the printer wizard. Chose the network printer w/ IPP (IPP/HTTP), then i typed the printer URI /HOME/USER/Printer etc,

when the set up is done i print "test page" but nothing happens. when i look at information it says "Processing (accepting job) but it doesnt work.

does anyone have an idea as to what im doing wrong?
any advise will be appreciated

socket://<printers_ip:9100> is set-up properly?


From your description it looks as if you were mixing
a network-type set-up with a file-system location ...

Since I have no idea which thread you found and followed
it's hard for me to give sensible advice. I'd suggest to have
a try using the web-interface (point a browser a
http://localhost:631) and tackle it from there ... go to
manage printers. If your printer is there, check the connection
type by looking at its settings in "Modify Printer"


Cheers,
Tink

You certainly aren't running a windows on the
printer? Or is your printer dangling of a windows
box?

hey tinkster, thanks for replying, to answer your question, yes my printer is dangling from a windows box. reason why i bring up samba is because im not able to view the shared docs on the xp machine. after typing smbclient -L SERVER i get the following the message which seems to be working correctly

added interface ip=192.168.0.103 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Got a positive name query response from 192.168.0.101 ( 192.168.0.101 )

after pressing Enter to bypass the password prompt ,

Domain=[HOME] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

Sharename Type Comment

C$ Disk Default share
Printer Printer HP DeskJet 950C/952C/959C

Server Comment
--------- -------
SERVER family's computer

Workgroup Master

HOME Server

however, when i try to access my shared docs i get ACCESS_DENIED .
i also tried your advise to go to localhost:631

Description: HP DeskJet 952C
Location:
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs.
Device URI: HOME/SERVER/Printer

it looks to me that im missing something, any ideas as to what i might be missing??
