Host name is always LOCAL???
Authored by: miafya on May 23, '03 04:04:25PM

I was getting the same problem -- the "Could not connect to SAMBA host" error message. No matter what combination of URI that I used, nothing worked.

The solution for me was to change my printer share name in XP so that it was less than 8 characters, with no spaces. I'm using smb://username@host/printername
