Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Windows Share Printer From 10.10?
Dec 6, 2010
I have shared my cpl-300 from my windows 7 machine to my network, so that may print from my linux laptop to it.
Now whenever I go to system -> Administration -> Printing and try and browse for my printer it asks for a username and password any username or password I enter that is on the windows 7 machine gets rejected.
So I tested to see what would happen if you used smbclient to view the shares available from the windows 7 machine, unfortunately it results in another permission error. The funny thing is I can mount a share using "mount -t cifs".
I have a Windows XP box with an HP5610 connected to a USB port. I have a Dell notebook computer loaded with Ubuntu 9.10. I have the two networked via a wireless connection and can share folders/files between the two with no problem. Unfortunately, I cannot share the Windows printer with the Ubuntu box. I can go through the printer setup with Samba on the notebook and the HP is detected however, whenever I go to verify I get an invalid argument error.
In reading one of the posts it suggested pinging the ubuntu box from the Windows box. Since I already have viable file sharing connection does that come in play at all?
I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 in dual boot with Windows XP on my computer at work. I have a printer (HP LaserJet 3020) and I've shared it with all my coworkers, and everything's working like a charm. When a coworker wants to print here, first he has to select my shared printer on his computer and then print it. Cool! The point is... On his computer there are two network printers pointing to my PC: one for Windows and another one for Ubuntu. Now, here's the problem. Sometimes I'm logged in Windows, sometimes in Ubuntu, here. But my coworkers don't know when I'm in Windows or Ubuntu. So, if they select my Windows shared printer and I'm logged in Ubuntu, it doesn't work.
So, I'd like to know if there is a way to share my printer on Ubuntu as if it were Windows, I mean, I don't know if it's possible - that's what I want to know - but I thought maybe there could be a way to use a "single network printer link" on my coworkers' computers (instead of two distinct ones for each OS I use), so that they would select it and send their printing job to my printer, independently on which OS I'm using at the moment.
Summarizing... A coworker chooses my shared printer on his computer and send the job. Then it would be printed here anyway. It doesn't matter if I'm logged in Windows or Ubuntu.Is that possible? If so, how?
I am trying to share my printer with a windows xp machine.Samber server and configuration tool is installed. Still I have no clue how to get this to work. The printer is setup and working on my Fedora desktop.as anyone done this before and can give a step by step description on how to setup a Linux printer on a network (home-network) with windows.I already searched for it but non of the tutorial were clear enough or missing something.
I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.
Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:
[Windows 2000 and higher] ps5ui.dll pscript.hlp pscript.ntf pscript5.dll
However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :
%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.
My laptop has Ubuntu 9.10. It can connect to shares on my XP and Vista computers without issue, but cannot connect to a share on my Windows 7 system. I'm using "Connect to Server" and have tried by both Computer name and IP address. When I click connect, it prompts me for User ID, workgroup and password, however when I enter them, the same prompt comes back a few seconds later and is blank. I don't receive any errors, it just won't connect.My XP and Vista systems can connect to the Windows 7 share, just not the Ubuntu system
I'm wondering if I can get an answer to this oneI'm pretty new to Ubuntu, been using it off and on for a few months now. Right now I'm using Lucid and I have no problem connecting to the other PC's in my house that run Windows 7, however when I try to access them it asks for a password. I disabled the password on the Windows PC, so is it possible to get into them without a pass? If so, how
I'm running Fedora 13 on my laptop and am trying to share out a folder from a Win7 computer. Folder on Win7 machine is set to allow access to everyone.In Fedora, I have SELinux disable, I've made sure samba is allowed in the firewall, and that the smb service is running. There's no password on the Win7 computer, so in the Windows Share setting on Fedora I just put the username and left the pass field blank.
I've seen some things say all you have to do is go the the "Network" place...but somehow that seems to have become non-existent and I don't know how to get it back.Also, trying to connect to smb://WinShare/Share results in it saying that the server has timed out.
My friend is trying to share his clearwire connection with me using Windows ICS. Using network-manager or wicd, I am unable to connect to his share. I am able to connect unencrypted with iwconfig, to the ad-hoc network, and then use dhclient to gain ip address.
I am not able to connect to WPA encrypted share using network-manager or wicd. nm-applet crashes when trying to connect. I am attempting to setup wpa_supplicant, but haven't got it working yet.As usual, the wireless networking out of the box experience in Ubuntu doesn't work. This is extremely frustrating. If Ubunut's goals are to be the default desktop, then these guys need to get wifi that "Just Works"...
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'm running Lucid and and trying to get Samba set up to allow sharing files on my network. My problem is that my Windows laptop (Win7) can't see the Linux PC when I click on Network. It only shows my own laptop and my roommate's Vista laptop. However, if I manually connect to the computer (\serenity) it works just fine.
Right now I'm simply using the smb.conf that comes with the package and adding my share info.
fter my reinstall of 10.04 I am unable to print to my printer which is on a Windows XP desktop. Always worked before.I go to System/Admin/Printing. Then search for a network printer using the IP address of my printer. I get the address back showing the printer that I want. I go through the entire install process find the HP printer and then the driver for the model and get to the last step to install it and get this error
Two users on both Ubuntu server and Windows 7. Both users admins on Windows. Used SWAT to set up Samba. Printer is local to Ubuntu server. User A can access both file share and printer on Ubuntu server from Windows. User B can access the file share but can only see the printer, not use it. Have looked everywhere I can think of to find out why one user has access and the other doesn't on both Windows side and Ubuntu side. As far as I can tell, they are set up the same. Can anyone provide some direction on what I should look at to find out what might be preventing User B from being authorized to use the printer on Ubuntu?
I have access to a "virtual" Windows server terminal, which I can access through my Ubuntu Linux via tsclient or rdesktop. Additionally, there are printer shares on this network, which can be accessed from any Windows PC on the network (including the "virtual" terminals); lets say the address is [URL]. Now, I open \printshares.company.com in the "virtual" terminal in rdesktop (avoiding tsclient since it has a Bug #94743 in tsclient (Ubuntu): Terminal Server Client isn't able to copy to/from clipboard) - and I can see all printers fine.. However, when I'm on my Linux machine directly on the work network, I try and do something like:
$ ping printshares.company.com PING printshares.company.com (192.168.0.200) 56(84) bytes of data. ^C64 bytes from 192.168.0.200: icmp_req=1 ttl=124 time=10.4 ms
Is it possible to retrieve the - let's call them "connection settings" - from the Windows terminal session, so I could replicate them under Linux when running smbclient? the IT department running these Windows servers is quite irritated by people using Linux; and will offer no support to those kinds of "customers". Furthermore, if obtaining those settings requires some installation on the client session, since I don't have permissions to install anything on the Windows terminal session.
My desktop is now dual boot, Xubuntu 10.10 has been added to WinXP. The attached parallel printer works fine with either OS. When running XP I can share the printer with my two XP laptops without problem. I cannot share it when the desktop is running Xubuntu. Neither laptop can see the printer. However, if I open the desktop Samba config application, change any parameter, retype in the original parameter, both laptops can see and connect to the shared printer - until I reboot the desktop
There is a printer connected to my Ubuntu box that I would like to share with XP users on my home network. When I browse for a network printer in XP the Ubuntu box is displayed, but does not display the connected printer.I added the following lines to cupsd.conf:Port 631Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sockand then restarted cups with:sudo /etc/init.d/cups restartI have also set ufw to allow incoming traffic through port 631 from each XP machine.
1. Want to share printer via Router (with print server function)2. Want to share files OSs and network map see image.Then tell me how I may achieve this is such a diverse network.note sharing printer by router is not the same as sharing printer connected to another computer, which 99.9% of CUPS and Samba guides concern themselves with. My router model is DIR-320 or ASUS RTN16 both capable of print server hosting.
Is there someone out there that makes something simple that you can network and share a printer between Kubuntu and Vista? I have my office computer running Kubuntu, which also has the printer attached to it. My media machine downstairs is running Vista, which I'd like to be able to print and share files from. I've been doing some reading that you need to use Samba. So, I installed Samba through Synaptic, and it appears that nothing happened. So, I did some more googling, and found I had to install something about system-config-samba, so I did.
I now have a Samba icon under k-menu > System > Samba. However, when I click on this icon, nothing happens. It does nothing (just like clicking on the Network Manager icon, which does nothing as well). So, I am now utterly confused. Is there a way to change samba settings via gui? I'm not comfortable with typing unknown commands into the terminal, as usually there is no explanation as to what's going on. If there was a step by step explanation, that would be ok, but as of now, there is nothing. Is there a simple setup tool out there?

I have always been able to print to this from Ubuntu by adding a network printer through the "Windows Printer via Samba" gui.Now, in Natty, I can set up the printer no problem but all jobs fail. In the printer properties gui I can see this text briefly: "Processing - unable to connect to cifs host".The errors in /var/log/cups/error_log are:

I cannot connect to a share on Windows XP machine, because it rejects my password. I'm using correct username and password. When running from console, smbclient's error message is: session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE I can connect to said share from other Windows machine.
I've bought a HP Photosmart printer, HP Photosmart wireless e-All-in-One printer - B110a and i've got a problem installing it properly. I'm using Debian 6.0 Squeeze. When i connect the printer, Debian doesn't recognize my printer as the Photosmart B109 printer for unknown reason. When i go to the site of HP and search for a driver, it directs me to this site:I've downloaded that latest hplip file as a .run file and installed it. My printer is recognized proparly, but when i try to print a colored image, it comes out black/white. Something is not crrect. Does anyone recognize this problem with this type HP printer?
I have connected a Windows 7 pc to a Ubuntu pc using a crossover cable & TCPIP. This works fine - can ping both ways and can 'see' both icons however when I try to setup the printer in Ubuntu the task fails at a prompt fpr user name - workgroup - password prompt. It tells me I must give a password to connect to the Windows box. This setup has worked when using WinXP but fails now. I have used all passwords known to me but nada. Where in the world is the Authentication dialogue originated? I'm both new to linux commands and loosing the will to live!
I am having difficulty connecting to a PC that runs Windows 7 (and suffice it to say Windows XP as well). I go to Places > Connect to Server and choose Windows share from the drop-down list. I enter in the computer's IP address in the Server field and click Connect, when I'm brought to the "Password required for x" screen (x being the IP address). I enter my username for the Windows machine, leave the Domain field as is (it is WORKGROUP by default, which is the Workgroup name for both PCs), and then I enter my Windows password. The dialog keeps popping up as if I entered incorrect credentials. I do want to point out, on the dialog, it asks for a Domain name. Since I do not have this computer connected to a domain (I'm at home), it is a workgroup network. However, prior to Ubuntu 10.10, I was able to use this method to connect to Windows computers.
I am setting up samba on my CentOS server for the first time. I am using webmin to configure samba. Here is the smb.conf
[global] netbios name = KISKA cups options = raw load printers = yes server string =
I can see the domain name "KISKA" in the "network" tab of windows explorer, however when I click on it I get this error: Windows cannot access \KISKA check the spelling of the name. otherwise there might be a problem with your network. Under the details of this error I get this: "The network path was not found" Also I have stopped iptables so it cant be firewalled
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.
