I have an Epson Stylus Photo 785 connected to a workstation running Windows XP 
Professional.  I would like to print to this printer using CUPS on a Debian 
(sid) box.  I have Samba-2.99 alpha3.0 installed.  On the Windows XP box, I 
have the Guest account enabled and the printer is shared.  My other Windows 
box can print just fine to it.  When I add the printer using the CUPS 
webadmin system, it says that SAMBA cannot connect to the print server.  
Furthur investigation using smbspool from the command line yields the 
following message:

The command I issued was:
server:~# smbspool smb://Wallace/dave-winxp/dave_inkjet a b c d e test

 (The manpage for smbspool indicated the options were not used, thus the a b c 
d e. test is a text file.  Wallace is the workgroup of the computer, 
dave-winxp is the computer name):

The response was:
failed tcon_X with NT_STATUS_OK
ERROR:  Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
ERROR: Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...: Success

I'm not if there is another way I should be testing this, but any suggestions 
would be greatly appreciated.  Please CC me directly, I am not subscribed to 
this list.
