Printing Problems

I am trying to print from my samba server to an NT printer.  In my
/etc/printcap i am using if=/usr/bin/smbprint.  I can print if I manually
use smbclient and give a valid user name and password. When I use smbclient
to print to the specific printer with the -N option I get a access denied
error. Basically NT is not letting me access the printer.  I do not have the
printer password protected.  It is an HP4000 LaserJet off a HP jetdirect
print server.  Any ideas on how I need to set this up correctly to print?
