Printing through Samba and Cups. Can't connect to host.

Hey all i just got CUPS up and (semi) running. I went to http://localhost:631/admin, entered my root password etc.

I'm trying to set up a shared HP DeskJet970 CXI so I choose Windows Printer via SAMBA and used:


As the Device URI.

I'm having problems "Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...foomatic-rip version $Revision: 3.47 $ running..." I think this is because i need a username and password to connect to //cv943500-a/ however i don't see an option to enter it anywhere.

Sorry if i'm not being clear lol, if you need clarification just ask. Thanks for any help!

I'm almost sure its a logon problem...I just looked and the error changed to something like NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"

EDIT: Just figured I'd put how i solved this for anyone who might stumble upon it:
(Its all in the "help" lol)
