Using openSUSE 11.4 and winXP pro sp3
I am a complete noob to linux.
I went into YAST2 and added a printer–none were found. I used the connection wizard and selected Print Via Print Server Machine>>Windows or Samba.
i entered the winxp info
Printer Share Name: HP4200
I selected HP for printer manufacturer. When I did test connection it said access test failed:
Domain=[MSHOME] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
ping: unknown host daddy
Testing share ‘HP4200’ on ‘MSHOME/daddy’:
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
Share ‘HP4200’ on ‘MSHOME/daddy’ does not accept print jobs (share may not exist?)
Host ‘daddy’ unreachable (network issue or wrong host or firewall active?)
So i hit OK anyway, then selected
HP Deskjet d4200 series hpcups 184.108.40.206.19
the model is an HP deskjet d4260
So then I print a test page----and the file is sent to the print spooler and the printer makes noises but then it stops:
document name Remote Download Document
Size 64KB/44.3 MB

I did this tutorial previously:
How To Samba With openSUSE 11.2 and Windows and can successfully use the MSHOME workgroup.
I then tried this tutorial:
Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]
when i go to http://localhost:631/ to Add printer it asks for my user name and password, the site says CUP—I enter my root user name and password and it says Unable to add printer: Forbidden
Please help! I am a complete Linux noob.
