Activate advanced printer selection feature in PrintCenter
Authored by: whoopy on Apr 05, '03 11:44:44PM

I'm getting the same error, no matter what printer URI I use... I can set
up the printer sucessfully, but I get that "will retry in 60 seconds" error
message.

I have everything that I need installed: gimp print and ghostscript. I can
pick out the proper driver for my printer (hp laserjet 6l - its the hp
laserjet 6 series driver).

I know that samba works cause I can log onto my win2k machine and
read the c drive (smb://machine name/c$ via 'connect to server'). I
know that the printer works over the network via another win2k machine
as well as locally.

I tried all sorts of drivers and the URI combos, still get that 60 second
error. Here are some of my URI attempts (even tried using an IP
address instead of a server name for all examples):

smb://<server name>/<printer name>
smb://<user id>:<password>@<domain>/<sever name>/<printer
name>
smb://<user id>:<password>@<sever name>/<printer name>
smb://<domain>;<user id>@<server name>/<printer name>

Any help would keep me from throwing the printer out of the window!!

I have the same problem BUT I had it working fine a couple of weeks
ago. My suspicion is it's something to do with the latest security update

Hi,

I've tried also a lot of device uri's but this one worked for me:
smb://<user id>:<password>@<domain>/<sever name>/<printer
name>

But I this figure out that the uri is case sensitive!!!
So all entries in this uri should be the same as on your win pc.
The server name is all capitals also your network name.
