Printing form linux --> Win95 with samba

Hello,
I have one computer (thor.duijnhoven) with linux and I want to print on a
W95 computer (wodan.duijnhoven).
So I used samba.
I can ping this computer, and I can even print when I use
smbclient on the command line.
But when I use lp and I look use lpc to see what the status
is it says. Waiting for wodan.duijnhoven to come up.
My printcap file:
epson|peter|netwerk|Epson Stylus:\
:lp=:rm=WODAN.DUIJNHOVEN:\
      :rp=EPSON PEER:\
      :sd=/usr/spool/lpd/epsonstylus:\
      :lf=/usr/spool/lpd/epsonstylus/errs:\
      :if=/usr/local/samba/bin/smbprint:\
        :df=/var/spool/lp1/filter.ps:\
        :tf=/var/spool/lp1/filter.ps:\
        :af=/var/spool/lp1/lp-acct:\

Put the following line in /etc/printcap:

lp:lp=/dev/null:sd=/usr/spool/lp1:sh:if=/usr/local/samba/smbprint

smbprint is a script used for printing with samba:


#!/bin/sh -x

# ...

eval acct_file=\$$#
spool_dir=`dirname $acct_file`
# Should read the following variables set in the config file:
#   server
#   service
#   password
eval `cat $config_file`echo "server $server, service $service" >> $logfile

(
# NOTE You may wish to add the line `echo translate' if you want automatic
# CR/LF translation when printing.
#       echo translate
        echo "print -"
        cat
) | /usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient "\\\\dana\\ibm" -N -P >> $logfile



config_file=$spool_dir/.config
