Connecting to a NT-printer

Hi,

I have Linux 2.0.32 running with samba in a network with a NT-server.
I'm able to connect to my account on the NT-server and access my files,
but the problem is:

I want to use a printer on the NT-server (I have no problems connecting
to this printer from other NT or Win95 machines).

This is what happens when I try to connect (of course I've changed the
share name, password etc.):
-----------
ai:/usr/local/samba/bin$ smbclient '\\server\printer' -U user%passwd
Server time is Tue Dec  2 01:08:26 1997
Timezone is UTC+1.0
Domain=[ANSATTE] OS=[Windows NT 4.0] Server=[NT LAN Manager 4.0]
security=user
SMBtconX failed. ERRDOS - 66
Perhaps you are using the wrong sharename, username or password?
Some servers insist that these be in uppercase
ai:/usr/local/samba/bin$
-----------
What's wrong (I know the sharename, username and password is correct)?

I would use the -P option - listed as "connect to service as printer" in the usage notes.  This command line worked for me.

smbclient \\\\gateway\\lp -P -n gateway -U solmssen

I put a file and it printed.
