smb printer

I do have an smb printer connected to Windows xp pro.I configured it on our redhat 9 linux server so that the user can print.Of late the printer was printing perfectly and I realised later that the same printer is no longer printing and its not accepting requests from linux point of view.If yo do a windows test print it is working fine.

How do you check the status of that particular smb printer in Redhat Linux 9 ?

Please assist me in this regard.

It depends on what type of printer, which print processor you are using lp or cups, and what the privaleges are for the user on the linux machine. If you connect to:


you should be able to view the status of your printer via your web browser if using cups. A little more info is needed.
