I understand you want to access a windows printer from Linux, and you
are testing with "smbclient .. -N".  (-N=don't ask for password).

I'm suggesting you do these tests using "smbclient ....
-Uuser%password  ....." where user and password are valid Windows
No configuration on samba (no smbusers).
Once you have this working, then you can try with "-N", after having
turned off "password protected sharing" on Windows.
