I have a printer connected to a Win7 machine that I would like to share with my Fedora 13 laptop.
Ive read through some tutorials and have managed to get samba installed. When I add the printer, I get to the new printer screen and select 'Windows Printer via SAMBA' then click browse. Iam then able to see my windows 'WORKGROUP' and the names of all the pc's on it. When I click on the pc that the printer is connected to (MAIN), I get an authentication dialog asking for a username and password in order to connect to MAIN. Initially I had no password set on my win7 account and could not access MAIN. I then put a password on my win7 account and tried again with my username, WORKGROUP for domain and my newly created password and still no luck.
Am I doing something wrong here? I am a linux newbie.
Thanks in advance.
