I have the exact same message in XP with my HP LJ4 on a Suse 9.0 box. All 
the printing works, but the printer status reports "Access denied, unable to 
connect", but yes, it works?

Solution: IGNORE IT ; -)    It is something funky on the XP, win2K side. If 
you find out what it is, let me know....
