I have an imac running OS X 10.4.11 that I am trying to get to print through a Windows Server 2003 print server. Services for Mac is enabled on the server. I can navigate and find the shared printer on the server from the mac, but when i connect to it and try to print, i get an NT_LOGON_ACCESS_FAILURE or Unable to connect to samba host. The mac ping the server server and can print to the printer directly using ip printing. How can i get this imac to print through the print server.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think you need the services for mac installed on the print server.  The newer Macs (Intel-based, such as OS X) can directly connect to Windows machines without any special concessions.  The only thing it sounds like may be happening is the following:
  1. Your print server is a member of a domain which has security policies define that require all file and print traffic to be signed, encrypted, or requires NTLM/NTLMv2 authentication only.
  2. Your print server requires authentication (standard) and the Mac has been configured to connect to the server anonymously.
  3. Your print server has access control defined on the printer.  Try adding "Everyone" and "Anonymous Logon" to the Security tab in the Printer properties dialog with the "Print" right.  Additionally, if you want the Mac to be able to delete jobs in the list, add the "Manage Documents" right as well.
