I am trying to install a Windows printer shared via SAMBA. I run system-config-printer, click on "Add", then "Network printer", then Windows printer via SAMBA", then on the "Browse" button on the right. A new window opo-up titled "SMB Browse", and thw workgroup named "WORKGROUP" is shows. When I click on it, the arrow on its left disappear, and the following error is issued in the command line

got no contact to IPC$
