OpenSUSE Network :: Windows 7 Cannot Connect To Samba-shared Printer?
Mar 23, 2010
My USB printer is connected to an OpenSUSE 11.2 desktop on a home network. I shared the printer with samba and can print from a Windows XP notebook connected to the network, but whenever I try to connect a Windows 7 machine, I always get the message that Windows cannot connect to the printer.
Printer directly connected with opensuse 11.2. we cant able to add printer in windows xp if wee add the system says the following error:
Function address 0x2c7d5e4 caused a protection fault. (exception code 0x0000005) The application property sheet page(s) may not function properly. And the system says acces denied unable to connect and the windows system hanging and says error report.
I want to print from my linux box to my win7 pc that has a shared printer. I have cups installed and tried to add pritner using samba, but was unsuccesful, gave me an error when trying to add. The guide i followed is: Yet another Linux to Windows printing tip -- Debian Admin The printer model is a dell 2330d laser printer, it is not in cups, so i added the ppd file i got off the dell support site. I am aware that there is a native suse driver, but i want to print to the windows printer.If possible I would like to know how to do this via command line instead of the GUI.
I am sitting with a slight problem sharing some HP network printers (JetDirect) with my windows machines. I have cups 1.4.4 configured on my Debian PDC with samba 3.5.5. The printers in question, is configured in cups and is working perfectly, but for some reason when I try to add the printers from Win7 or Win Vista I get the following error:
"Connect to Printer Windows cannot connect to the printer Operation failed with error 0x00000006"
I had a look around and it seems that the above error code is tied in with incorrect drivers, but the strange thing is that if I create a new local port on the win machines and specify the shared printers they work. The problem then is that cups does not identify the jobs correctly. The job will be named something like "smbprn.00000264 Remote Downlevel Document" instead of the actual document name. One of the reasons for using cups is to be able to monitor printer usage so this option is a temporary solution in my mind. Can the print$ share be causing it although it is empty and no drivers has been uploaded? Neither the samba nor cups logs give me something concrete to work with (hopefully someone else can spot the problem).
Extract from samba log:

how to get clients connecting to an office printer. during a migration from windows server to debian/samba.
5 windows XP machines one Windows Server 2003 machine, PDC of the old domain One debian Samba PDC (of TEST domain)/print server (with CUPS installeD) running in a virtual machine hosted by the windows server One Toshiba eStudio 3511 printer
Using the CUPS control panel, I've been able to autodetect and add the printer, and it appears as an available share in SWAT for samba. However, the driver isn't perfect. CUPS could only supply drivers for the 3510c, not the 3511.
However, clients on the TEST domain are unable to access it. Doing so gives an error about a local policy preventing a connection to the print queue. I've tried googling this error and the fix that comes up in every result about changing a point and print policy setting, does not work.
however, I've been able to work around the issue. by first logging in as local administrator, navigating to the domain server, then inputting the domain root account credentials at the prompt. That allows me to attempt to connect to printers, but with a different error
"The server for the printer does not have the correct driver installed...."
I very strongly suspect that the 3510 driver actually will work, but it's just not being shared properly. The printer driver share folder is /var/lib/samba/printers, and that directory contains only a few empty subfolders. CUPS did not place the driver there as I would expect, and that is where clients are looking for it.
The thing is, I have no idea where CUPS DID put the driver.
On the old domain, the printer uses drivers for es4511, and looking on the toshiba site, this seems to be what they provide. The Toshiba Site provides a huge variety of drivers, including several windows ones, a universal driver, and a CUPS PPD. Cups asks for an optional PPD during install and I tried supplying that. It said installed successfully, but didn't change anything.
I've tried pasting the windows drivers into /var/lib/samba/printers/W32X86 too, and likewise with other drivers from toshiba's site. but this doesn't change anything either, so I'm at a bit of a loss.
how to install/setup drivers on a samba PDC, for windows machines?
Also relevant, my smb.conf: anyone see any possible causes of problems? # Samba config file created using SWAT # from UNKNOWN () # Date: 2010/08/19 13:03:07
I have found that there are certain things on the web that I need to print, that simply refuse to work under linux. I have a samba printer server on one of my Slackware boxes and an M$ XP vm under Vbox that can access the server and see the printer. The only problem that I have is that it expects to download a driver from the server which isn't available and the HP driver installer won't install if it doesn't detect the printer. Short of relocating the printer to install the driver, does anyone know how to get the driver installed on the XP host? This is so much easier with my Slack boxes and CUPS!
I have installed Canon ImageRunner 2018i on my linux box using CUPS web interface. When I try to install this as a network printer from a Windows XP machine, the windows XP machine keeps asking me for a device driver. Is there a way to configure the printer on CUPS/Samba so that when I try to install it on Windows XP machine as a network printer, it does not ask me for a device driver?
I have Ubuntu Server 9.10 and Windows 98 client. I already installed samba in ubuntu so that windows 98 can access shared files from ubuntu. When I ping both their ip address there is a reply. Ubuntu Server can see shared files from Windows 98 but Windows 98 cannot see Ubuntu Server through Network Neighborhood and their is an error " Unable to connect the network". What are the possible things to solve this problem?
I have a fresh install of CentOS 5.5. I am trying to browse to the Windows machines on my network (Places > Network Servers > Windows Network), but I get a blank window. I am able to ping the Windows machines using their IP address, but not by their name. What do I need to do to be able to see the Windows machines and also to connect to shared folders on these machines? So far I have tried starting SMB (via System > Administration > Server Settings > Services). I have also tried changing my smb workgroup to "WORKGROUP" (the default was mygroup which did not match my Windows machines.
Just tried to be as descriptive as possible in the title. I'm running Opensuse 11.4, KDE 4.6.5 under Tumbleweed repos. I have an external HD with two partitions (Argos & Hercules) mounted in fstab as follows:
I just upgraded from SuSE 11.3 to 11.4. For some reason, I can no longer access my shared drive from any other home computer. I can get out to the internet. I can ping other PCs on the network. Other PCs can ping me. My router sees all computers, and has assigned IP addresses dynamically. I have a shared folder, exported as an NFS mount point, that used to work! I've tried setting up Samba shares. Nothing! I disabled the local firewall, as my router already has a firewall running. Nothing! Nothing I've tried seems to work. I can not see that NFS mount point from any of my windows PCs. (I only have the one Linux server running, so I can't say whether another Linux box would see it or not!)
I just started with my linux opensuse. I always used windows, but i changed to linux. With windows you always could easily connect with command promp to a shared file on a other intern computer. How can i do this with opensuse?
In my samba configuration, I have a strange share. Share name: MyPrinter Shared folder: /var/spool/samba comment = lp read only = No print ok = Yes The spool directory /var/spool/samba has been shared as a printer. What will be the harm caused by it? (I don't know who shared such). And I also wanted to know the security issue due to it..
I am trying to access a shared printer from one Ubuntu PC to another.
On the Server PC, I have the printer working, I have set it to shared, and I have set the server setting to Publish shared printers. I can see and use the printer fine from a windows PC.
On my Ubuntu Client PC, I have samba installed, including smbclient, and all other samba components I can think of. I can see other computers on my home workgroup (Windows and Ubuntu fine). I can also add a printer connected to my windows PC. However I cannot find the printer connected to the other ubuntu PC.
I see the instruction in the Samba guide saying
"Now enter your Ubuntu Samba Print Server (set up as above) IP address in the box on the left titled "smb://"."
However I do not have fixed ip addresses, so what am I supposed to enter in the box. If I enter nothing I can browse the network and can see the host computer, but the printer is not displayed. I can also see the printer connected to the windows PC. How do I 'see' the Ubuntu printer?
I'm trying to set up a Samba printer in Debian linux. The printer is being shared by a computer running windows vista. Some of the information I've got in the process. Sharing seems to be working, the printer seems to be detected and authenticating (I've tried invalid values and the utility I'm using to set things up says it cannot verify when I use invalid values, but with things as they are it claims everything checks out).
When I go into CUPS it says it detects the printer and everything is working. However, printing a test page causes the job to be immediately complete and nothing happens. It seems that the job is getting lost somewhere in the process. Could it be a firewall issue? I feel like the right ports must be unblocked since I can query the computer and verify the printer, etc. I have a laptop with vista which I installed a printer on and was able to print to that computer just fine. So it doesn't seem to be a Vista thing.
Code: Domain=[OFFICECOMPUTER] OS=[Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium 6000] Server=[Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium 6.0] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- ADMIN$ Disk Remote Admin C$ Disk Default share D$ Disk Default share HP Deskjet D1500 series Printer HP Deskjet D1500 series IPC$ IPC Remote IPC print$ Disk Printer Drivers session request to 192.168.0.10 failed (Called name not present) session request to 192 failed (Called name not present) session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present) NetBIOS over TCP disabled -- no workgroup available
I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and i've installed my HP Printer and SAMBA successfully. Windows XP clients on my network can successfully print through this shared printer. My problem is, is there a way to put a security password or some sort of authentication before they can print? its because this printer is only dedicated to one department only.
Just recently got a few printers connected to the network at my shop and I've managed to get them connected in with samba for the linux clients. Whenever I try to print from one of the clients, the printer will click on and whiz away, but only prints on the first page stuff that looks like this:
Code: %!PS-Adobe-3.0 %%BoundingBox: 38 24 574 768 %%Title: Enscript Outpu %%For: User N
It seems to me that the printer isn't processing the postscript data properly (or I'm just not sending it in the right format) but I'm at a loss as to how to go about fixing it.
How to configure samba, cups, whatever else is necessary to turn centOS into a print server that provides the print driver to any client adding a printer shared from the server? For example, I have a Xerox Phaser 6125n and I was able to configure my server to share the printer for clients on the network, but I still have to have the driver available on each client that uses the printer. I want to be able to put the driver on the server and provide it automatically to any client who installs the printer.
Also, this is not as important but rather just an annoyance, I am having an issue with samba that I can't figure out. I have user shares set up on the server but the first time any user accesses their personal share they need to provide their password. How can I set up user mapping between linux and windows accounts so that authentication is automatic? I've done this in the past with Fedora Core 2, but that was a long time ago and the same doesn't work on centOS.
Installed fedora/configued samba, shared printer and i am not able to access shared printer from any of the fedora machine. I am able to access the printer /shared folder from windows machine. I dont know the process of cups installation.
I have a file server running 11.04 w/ a shared printer connected to it, all my windows machines see it as shared & connect to it no prob. My laptop running the same OS 11.04 can see all the shares but no printer?
I have a Centos 5.3 server with Samba file shares and a shared Samba printer. I am not running a domain.
I recently changed my windows desktop pc from an XP machine to a vista 64 machine... It has a different user name. Everything went pretty smoothly - and the and the vista machine found the smba printer - and even downloaded the driver from the samba server. he printer works OK - and the file shares are fine.
The only thing which is quite odd - is that the Printer Properties dialogue takes more than 30 seconds to come up - and every action you attempt with the dialogue takes a similar amount of time.
I have 3 computers. One running openSuse 11.3 with SAMBA and the other 2 are Windows 7 Professional boxes. I have the same user name and passwords for all three boxes.
From the Linux box I can access one of the Windows 7 boxes but the other won't accept my user name and password. The one that won't accept has Windows LiveID Sign-In Assistant installed. Apparantly that's an automatic install now.
I've read that there is a bug with the SAMBA libsmbclient [URL].
I tried updating via YAST but still end up with version 3.5.4-5.1.2 and this doesn't work.
I have a hardisk shared on my windows machine. And I would like to be able to access this on my opensuse notebook. Just cant figure it out. Dont have much experience in opensuse. I just need to know the best way to do this. Also, can opensuse read/write NTFS? Also I have a printer on my moms machine that runs XP home. The printer is shared I would like to be able to print but its no biggie. It some type of HP 3 in 1. I just wnat it to print, I dont care about the scanner and stuff.
I mount the shared drives (on a Windows Server 2003) and I can access them from my home directory. Everything is mostly fine. But I also get desktop icons for the shared drives, which I don't like since I prefer a bare desktop. Sometimes I have deleted desktop icons from /usr/share/dist/... but these are not there.
I have just got my network to work on Fedora, and now I have run into an new problem... I can't access any shared files or printers. The computer that has the printer and the files I want to access runs windows XP Home edition, and when I boot into XP on my machine, I can access the files and printer. Can this be fixed, or is Fedora incompatable with Windows XP in this case?
Using openSUSE 11.4 and winXP pro sp3I am a complete noob to linux.I went into YAST2 and added a printer--none were found. I used the connection wizard and selected Print Via Print Server Machine>>Windows or Samba.i entered the winxp info
I have steup samba shares on my Susi pc. I get to the point where the server asks for a password for the user I have on the Susi box but when I enter the password it fails to connect. tried to add the user, password and enabled the user in the samba conf file. But not sure where it should appear I give below the smb.conf file:
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed.
Ok have setup my printer under suse 11.3 just fine and printing perfectly, and have added the printer to a windows 7 client, but had to get the disk to install the windows driver. Is there any way that i can put the windows driver on the linux machine so that when i go to a windows client and want to add the printer, i can just connect to the printer and the windows driver will be installed over the network like it does with windows servers?
Yesterday I installed FC13.i636, Gnome 2.30.0, on my Dell Latitude D505 laptop. Fresh install from live CD, single partition. Installed all 400+ recommended updates last night. System is working *very* smoothly.I want to print (wireless connection) to my Canon MP160 printer, which is attached to my WinXP machine, and is set as a Shared printer in WinXP. I can print to it fine with my iBook.I used the System/Admin/Printing app to set up a networked printer, letting the app "find" the printer. Printer now shows in the app as:
I choose the appropriate driver and tried a test page. Test page job results in queue showing job "processing" but nothing comes from printer, even ten minutes later. Printer properties show:
