Cannot print from Unix to Windows

Hi all. I am trying to set a Unix Print Queue on a Windows Server 2003 machine. I have added the Windows Component for Print Services for Unix and The TCP/IP Print Server service is running. The share name and queue name are the same. I have tried to configure the port using both Raw and LPR protocols. Here is the System error that it generates when attempting the test:
