Background:
LAN network consists of 1 Linux server, 1 Linux client machine, and 1 Windows NT 4.0 Server that is only used as  a workstation.

I recently attached a HP OfficeJet to the Win NT Machine. It woks fine for local print requests coming from the NT box, but I cannot figure out how to setup a printer entry on my Linux box so that I can send print requests from linux to the printer on the NT box. Any help would be appreciated!

What distiribution and version of Linux are you using?

Author

Commented:
I'm running Red Hat 5.0

NT has an lpd compatible queue service that linux will talk to by default.  It's not loaded or enabled by default, so you need to install and configure it.

I tried this but could not get i to work. After reading the documentation it looks like this is for defining a printer connected to a unix machine so that you can print from the NT machine with the unix system's lpd. I have the printer connected to the NT machine and want to print from the remote linux box... If your answer is correct I'll need more help to be able to utilitze it...

Thanks,
Andy

From http://www.samba.bst.tj/samba/docs/faq/sambafaq-3.html#ss3.8

The SAMBA documentation pages say to do ONE of these two things.  You appear to have done BOTH of them:

3.8 I've applied NT 4.0 SP3, and now I can't access Samba shares, Why?
As of SP3, Microsoft has decided that they will no longer default to passing clear text passwords over the network. To enable access to Samba shares from NT 4.0 SP3, you must do ONE of two things:

Set the Samba configuration option 'security = user' and implement all of the stuff detailed in ENCRYPTION.txt.
Follow Microsoft's directions for setting your NT box to allow plain text passwords. see Knowledge Base Article Q166730
