I am running into a strange error when trying to connect to a printer on a samba server.  The server is running RedHat 7.2 and Samba 3.0-alpha 17 (I pulled it down from CVS - HEAD section).

I can browse the shares, but when I attempt to connect to the printer share, it gives me this message (on the windows side):

"Could not connect to the printer.  You either entered a printer name that was incorrect or the specified printer is no longer connected to the server."

It does this after asking me if I want to install the driver for the printer.

The log for the machine on the server side is as follows:

[2002/04/12 17:27:02, 2] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_out(929)
  error connecting to (PDC):445 (Connection refused)

[2002/04/12 17:27:03, 2] rpc_server/srv_spoolss_nt.c:find_printer_index_by_hnd(251)
  find_printer_index_by_hnd: Printer handle not found: find_printer_index_by_hnd: Printer handle not found: close_printer_handle: Invalid handle (OTHER:29495:29496)

What does this mean and what am I doing wrong?  I am using winbind, which appears to be working just fine.
