Connect to a network printer via samba


Hey guys. I'm trying to connect to a windows computer that has a shared printer using system-config-printer, it's installed and configured as well, but, when it starts to print it gets stuck with a message "held for authentication" and doesn't print. What this could be ?

Do you have the necessary authorization to print to this shared Windows printer? Correct credentials? What does the printer URI look like? In general it needs to look like
Code:
smb://username:password@<workgroup>/<NetBIOS_hostname>/<printers_name>

If a Windows domain is employed, then the following page may be helpful to you
