[Samba] No Printer Connection, Samba sharing cups printer

I'm using samba to share printers from a cups service. In the windows
explorer both printers, a network tcp/ip printer connected using a jet
direct box and a pdf printer added by the package cups-pdf, are visible and
both can be used from the cups web interface and work.

When trying to use each from the windows explorer:

The pdf printer can be printed to just fine.
The jet-direct printer replies with an error message after windows tries to
connect with:

[Window Title]
Add Printer

[Main Instruction]
Connect to Printer

Windows couldn't connect to the printer. Check the printer name and try
again. If this is a network printer, make sure that the printer is turned
on, and that the printer address is correct.


Only similar error I found is this:

rpcclient localhost -Nc enumprinters


Connecting to ::1 at port 445
Doing spnego session setup (blob length=74)
got OID=

Got NTLMSSP neg_flags=0x60088215
NTLMSSP Sign/Seal - Initialising with flags:
Got NTLMSSP neg_flags=0x60088215


and it is as the bug reproduction says : "The "name" field show that the
printer name is missing and only the hostname appear."

 below 7) )

I'm running samba version: Version 4.1.17-Debian

Can someone give me some advice how to fix this please?
