smbclient -> amount of free disk space incorrect

I am lost:

 On my Debian/Linux computer, I try to use samba to access a printer on a
Windows/NT network. When I'm diagnosing my samba server, the connection to
the printer seems to be OK because the command 'smbclient //SERVER/printer1'
returns 'smb: \>'. But the amount of free disk space shown isn't correct when
I type "dir": an access denied appeared. What does it means and what can I

Thank's a lot for your answers,

Linux: ~ > smbclient //SERVER/printer1
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
Domain=[TOTO] OS=[Windows NT 4.0] Server=[NT LAN Manager 4.0]
smb: \> dir
ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.) listing \*

                0 blocks of size 0. 0 blocks available
smb: \>
