I have a mixed network of Win95, Win98, Win2000, and Linux SuSE 7.3
machines in a workgroup, CDI-WORKGROUP. The printer is mounted on my VA
server and made available to the network using Samba. I can print to the
Samba printer from my Win2000 boxes, but not from my Win95 or Win98
boxes. When I try to print from either my Win95 or Win98 boxes, it askes
for a password. The message is "You must supply a password to make this
connection. Resource: \\CDI-VA\VA_LP-RAW". I have no idea what password
it needs. I have tried them all.
smbclient -L CDI-WORKGROUP
added interface ip=192.168.1.1 bcast=192.168.1.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
