Samba Printing


Hi,
I have a hpdeskjet 932c connected to slackware9.1. i am running samba. i set the printer up in samba and i can see it in my windows 2000 box. but it says access denied unable to connect. when i do "lpstat" i get this....

garrett@garrett:~$ lpstat
Printer 'Garrett@localhost' - cannot open connection - No such file or directory
Make sure the remote host supports the LPD protocol
and accepts connections from this host and from non-privileged (>1023) ports
