> 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 denied.
> 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.
> From the dos prompt on the P111 I can net view, but if I
> try to net view penguin I get System error 59 has occurred, an
> unexpected network error  occurred. From the linux PC penguin,
> smbclient -L lists all the shares on any of the PC's using ip or
> computer name.
> Any advice appreciated.
