How to access a printer in a machine with windows installed?
I'd like to know how to configure the printer in Mandrake 10.0.
The computer is in a network and the printer is connected to another computer with windows installed. I went to "Configure your computer System configuration tool", then to "Hardware" and then to "Printers". I clicked in "Add Printer", then in "Next", then I chose "Printer SMB/Windows 95/98/NTserver" and I clicked in "Next". That was the configuration that I set:
SMB server host: "computer name of the machine that has the printer"
SMB server ip: "ip of of the machine that has the printer"
Share name: "share-name of the printer"
It doesn't need username and password, so I left them blank. When I execute the command smbclient -NL "computer name", doesn't appear the name of the workgroup, so I left it blank too.
Then I chose the printer model and the paper format and everything was just looking fine, but when it was print the test page, didn't work. Appeared that it was printing, but actually, nothing happened.
So, is anyone know what is going wrong and what should I do to fix it?
