I've tried to use the spoolss Python-module to connect to a NT4-Printershare. 
The password contains german umlauts, which made it impossible to connect.

To avoid Codepage-problems, I changed the password to one Character (ä) and 
iterated from i=0 to 255 doing a python "chr(i)" as password, but none 

As the routines expect a string (and not a unicode) I expected that one should 
match. Is this my misunderstanding, or a bug in spoolss-bug/the underlying 

Thanks in advance
