I have a strange problem here.  I have a network of Windows NT and XP clients that print to printers shared by Samba.  

When I double click on the printer icon, the queue opens and it says in the title bar, "Initializing", then "Failed to connect, Retrying".

I was able to resolve this on Windows NT by created "Samba Printer Port" as a local port.  Unfortunatly in Windows XP, everything is greyed on on the 'Ports' tab.  The most I can do right now is create a "Samba Printer Port" by going into "Server Properties" and defining a global port for all the printers.  But the problem that still remains is How can I tell my networks printers to use the "Samba Printer Port"?????
