hello folks,

i'm running 3.0.23b and i've noticed something that has changed.
before, i could give my users (on xp) links to the printers via


these days, clicking on such links would result in an error message
about how they might not have permissions to use the resource,
ending with Incorrect function.

however, if i ask them to connect to the server via \\servername and
double-click on the printer they need, they are able to connect
without any problems.

any hints?
