I'm attempting to access printer from a Win XP client to a Samba
3.0.14a PDC server. I'm able to see the printers from XP but when I
"double-click" on the printer, I get this odd error message.
"Operation could not be completed. either the printe rname was typed
incorrectly, or the specified printer has lost its connection to the
server. For more information, click Help."
I am able to print from my server box. I am able to send a print job
from smbclient(on the same samba server) to the samba server. I able
to issue the comman "net print [printername]" from the xp box and I'm
able to see the queue. I'm able to mount file shares on the Samba PDC
to the XP client.
I've shut down iptables and added the ip address to my cupsd.conf file,
but no luck.
Now, is the problem that I have to be part of the Samba domain in order
to access the printer? Because I am have not done that just yet. I
hope this is not a bug. Thanks.
