10.3: Another fix for SMB printing
Authored by: riverawynter on Sep 21, '04 01:54:44PM

Well, I do not know if this is of much help but my wife had the same issue with her laptop at work (which she threaten to sell on ebay if I did not solve her problem). What I found out was that you have to specify the Windows workgroup in Mac OS X. You can do this by opening the Directory Service application. Click on the lock to be able to do modifications, this will open an authentication dialog for the admin. After that click on the smb button, this should bring up the SMB dialog. All I had to do was to insert the workgroup name, but I guess you can put the server if you know it. Once i did this everything worked out fine. Here is a link to a Help document from apple on how to configure the SMB services. Home this helps.
