Linux->WinXP Network print problems : Ubuntu

I'm trying to network an Epson CX3650 Combi between Ubuntu and WinXP. The printer is set up on the XP laptop and both boxes are connected via router. Network print works XP->XP however the CUPS web interface gives me the error,

"Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...ERROR: Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"
Device URI: smb://becca/epson

Any ideas?

Change this to


I am assuming that becca is the name of the xp laptop. XP is denying your access because samba is not authenticating properly.

In my home I have both computers behind a firewall, and the XP machine has 4 different profiles on it, each has no password. My linux laptop sends print jobs to smb://mom:@family/printer and that is able to authenticate. If you want to keep passwords on your profiles in winxp, you could try and put the password in between the : sign and the @ sign, but I do not know if that will work, your password might be sent plain text by samba and interpretted wrong by windows xp because it is expecting an encryption of some kind. Or just turn on the guest account on the windows xp machine.
