I have a USB printer here that is connected to a Windows XP machine (the host). This printer is shared and used by two Windows 7 machines, and one Ubuntu machine.
This setup has worked until today. Now the printer only works when printing from the host machine, not from the network. I've restarted the XP machine, but that didn't help. I can ping the host.
On the Ubuntu machine I see the following error message: Processing - Unable to connect to CIFS host...
Any ideas what I can do to fix this?
I changed the groupname and computer name for that computer, and now I can find the printer when I reinstall in on Ubuntu. However, when I print a page, I get the following error message:
Processing - Connection failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
So it finds the printer with correct name etc when I reinstall it, but when printing, the network name is not working?
