I am running SuSE V8.0, and Samba 2.2.7a on a small 
network server.

I have been having problems relating to sorting out printing from an NT4 
workstation to a laser printer on the Samba server.

I had to reboot my Windoze PC and am logged in as myself (I have 
Administrator rights). I can see the shares by looking for the computer from 
Windows explorer using the ip and can proceed to add the printer 
unsing the wizard, however it fails on trying to finish the process. I can see 
this PC in network neighborhood as "penguin" its name , but get an access 

I did not have this access problem until I had to reboot the windows PC. 
I have the following entries in my lmhosts file:       p111         #P111 office       loft         #Loft pc       penguin      #Linux pc	      notebook     #notebook

Notebook is not connected, Loft is another linux PC and is accessible without 
problem, P111 is the NT PC , and penguin is the problem.
