[Samba] NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL message-- were to look?

Hi folks,

I'm trying to access a shared printer on a windows machine.  The
windows box (call it "Doze") is located behind a router/printserver,
and is set up thus:

-DOZE connects to the printer via the printserver using the PRTMATE
port, and then shares the printer via smb -- workgroup CHASS, server
name HIS-FACLAB, printer name his-fac-lex
-Router forwards all incoming connections on 137,138,139,445, and 1024

My linux box (Anarres) is outside the router, but I can browse the
router's network easily using Smb4K.  I can access all SMB "Shares" on
DOZE without any problems, and when browsing can see the printer,
which smb4K tells me is //HIS-FACLAB/his-fac-lex.  But when I try to
print to the printer (using either CUPS with URI
smb://HIS-FACLAB/his-fac-lex, or the smb4k native browser), I am
unable to do so, and get the error "NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL".
I'm pretty much entirely ignorant about windows so I'm not so sure
where to go next.  can someone point me in the right direction? 

thanks very much,
