I installed the smbclient package in debian... I can connect to shared
filesystems on the win98 box //LARRY.  Such as smbclient //LARRY/AU. and
the also the printer //LARRY/ML1210 (my samsung printer.)  But when
connected to the printer if I say print.  It says the following:

oube at debian:~$ smbclient //LARRY/ML1210
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
error connecting to (Connection refused)
smb: \> print newfile1.ps 
putting file newfile1.ps as newfile1.ps (96.5 kb/s) (average 96.5 kb/s)
smb: \>

But when I check the printer nothing has come out.  Also cups printing
doesn't work but I assume thats because its trying to print to samba and
samba isn't working yet.
