URI mangling
Authored by: karenwallace on Mar 28, '03 10:58:47AM

When I enter the printer's URI as

smb://username:password@workgroup/servername/share

the system very unkindly changes it to

smb://usernamepassword/servername/share

and then tries to connect to a printer called servername on a server called usernamepassword. This happens whether I enter it via the Print Center or via the CUPS web config. I've also tried smb://workgroup;username/servername/share and smb://workgroup;username:password/servername/share to no avail. Anyone else have this problem?
