Cannot print from OS X 103 to windows 2003 print server



I tried following:

to print to a printer setup on my windows 2003 server. I am trying to use
SMB but no luck.

The security log error on win2k3 box is

Any ideas? I cannot print. Also our DOmain is setup to use only NTLM v2 and
above. Is that a problem with OS X?

From your CUPS configuration, what did you use as your SMB UNC type
path name. It would have to include your username/password in order to
authenticate to the server to print. That error message seems to
indicate that you haven't authenticated to the server and are trying to
print. At least that's what I make of it.

I think this version of the address


where you actually have to fill in "winuser" and "password" would be

I'm mostly guessing here, since I've only tried doing this to Win XP
(Home/Pro) not any of the server editions, and no domain controllers

Let me know if this helps at all, and I'll update that web page.



YEs followed exactly what u said. I keep getting a event id error 529

Authentication failed or something. I know the password is right because I
have got file sharing working and I can authenticate that way
