Has anyone successfully been able to print to a
Samsung ML-1710 shared on a windows network. I've got the USB driver installed and can print to the printer if I plug directly into it, but cannot print over the network. I can't find a GIMP driver for it. I am able to print to my other network printer, a Canon s820. I'll need fairly basic instruction, as I am new to the Mac world after 20 years on PCs. I'm running OS X 10.3 on a G4 Powerbook.

Well, I have the drivers loaded to enable me to print when the printer is physically connected to my Powerbook. What I want to do is print over the network when my printer is shared on my Windows machine. Also, the link you gave me is broken for the os x 1.2 and up driver.

Thanks anyway

You might try looking at Linuxprinting.org (http://www.linuxprinting.org) especially the part about OS X, and thier forums can have a lot of useful info.

Also check here (http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/p_FAQ_OS_X.php3#sambaSetup) .

Try this:

You don't need to install CUPS 'cause it's now built into Panther.

Any other info about the PC would be helpful (OS, can you see any SMB shares, is it running a firewall Norton PF).

I'm having a similar issue to the original poster.

I'm running 10.3 and trying to print to a Samsung ML-2150 shared via USB from a windows computer running XP.

I've tried adding the printer through "Windows Sharing", and also through the "Advanced" SMB method described by the link above, but no matter what happens I get the following errors:


Connection failed with error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds

Any ideas?

Hey.

I got a cheap 1510 for my documents, it's a nightmare to set up. Scratch that, it's impossible; the Linuxprinting.org drivers may work for the 2150 and 1710 at a push, but the simplest answer I have found is:

Print documents as PDF to (Samba'd) 'documents' folder on PC
Run Remote desktop...
Print through that :(

Not the most elegant solution, but it works.

Ugh. Doesn't sound good. Maybe some new drivers will come out? I'd love to hear from a Samsung success story. :)

A success story? WEll mine kinda is. I have a mac network here in my dorm room. my desktop is hooked via USB hub to an Espon CX6400 and the ML 1710. I have a wireless hub that I use for my laptop. It a breeze to print wirelessly from the laptop to the either printer (mac print sharing is so easy), now If i could just set it up so my PC roommate can print on it as well. The print sharing is great, granted you talking about a PC network, but this mac one is a success. Still working on the windows part of it, I got it once last year, but it was short lived and tough to set up, I have an odd mix of DAVE and panther windows filesharing stuff, DAVE still thinks its installed, but it isn't, oh well. Good luck

Hmm... Sounds like it'll take some new drivers from samsung that support windows printing.
