I cannot print. So, I am diagnosing my samba server with the list of tests
proposed by Andrew Tridgell and detailed in the documentation of samba on
my Debian/Linux computer (file /usr/doc/samba/DIAGNOSIS.txt.gz). In this
documentation, Test 7 recommends to run the command

 smbclient //BIGSERVER/TMP 

and says : 

 <<Once connected (smb: \>), you should especially check that the amount of
 free disk space shown is correct when you type "dir">>.

That is what I do.
