The network here in the Economics Faculty is based on Windows. A problem that I had for a long time is when setting the printer setup to work using SAMBA was that that I placed the work group in the machine name.
That did not work and it was frustrating to find the reason.
Sometime ago I found a tip that solve all my problem regarding the connectivity using sample. I need to place the work group in the user field.
That is instead of:
Device URI: smb://Workgroup/printserver.example.org
the correct options is:
Device URI: smb://printserver.example.org
After finding this tips all my problems connecting to windows printer shares or disk partitions using SAMBA are gone. :-)
