    Samba Linux to windows printer

    Hi guys i'm soo confused about networking I dont understand Samaba or NFS all I want to do is to access a windows(2k pro) and be able to send files and use the printer. I have looked around but it doesnt make any sense to me.

    TIA
    Micahel and i'm using a linksys router.

    hello,
    redhat 9 - right ? i know i went to the redhat printer config tool, select smb printer and added the ms windows printer name, i do remember i needed the correct notation, i.e. \\shittymscomptermywifeusedandihated\printername - i also needed to enter the username and password. that was redhat 7.2 i think, but i should be the same now.

    Did you remember to share the printer on your Win2k box?

    1) Share the printer in Windows
    2) install LinNeighborhood

    1. Substitute your user logon name on the Windows box for "fred."
    2. Substitute your password on the Windows box for "mypass."
    3. Substitute the name that you assigned to your Windows box for "rice."
    4. Substitute the share name that you assigned to your printer under Windows for "inkjet."

    ok this is wat I did and I keep getting an error. The windows box doesnt have a password.

    /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p NetPrinter -v smb://Administrator:@JAMES -P /root/hpdeskje.ppd
    lpadmin: Unable to connect to server: Connection refused

    File and print sharing is enabled on the windows box.
