Hi all,
I have an hp laserjet 1000 thats hooked to a windows xp pro box. I setup CUPS to print to smb://server/hplj1000. CUPS then gives me this error message when trying to print:

"Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...ERROR: Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"

Now this tells me that CUPS isnt getting permission to print but windows doesent have any permission settings for the printer, just a share name. I tried to change the device string to:

Code:
smb://username:password@server/hplj1000
(of course using my windows username and password etc.) but the CUPS web admin gives me an error that says its an invalid entry. Is my problem on the cups side or windows side? I never had to give anyone permission to print to a windows printer from another windows system.
