I am trying to print from my Debian unstable Notebook to a printer
that is connected to a Windows 2000 Server. Target environment is CUPS
which uses smbspool as a front-end, and smbspool gives a strange error
| export DEVICE_URI="smb://account:password@domain/server/printer"
| smbspool foo bar Title 1 ignore Makefile
gives the error message
| ERROR: ERRHRD - ERRgeneral (General failure.) opening remote file Title
Same thing happens with
| export DEVICE_URI="smb://domain\account:password@server/printer"

the account in question. So the Windows people say that the server is
Am I doing something wrong with smbspool?
Any hints will be appreciated.
I will be on site again on Friday, so I won't reply to answers until I
have tried what you suggested.
