    Connecting to Samsung printer on Windows PC
    Hi guys,

    I connected to my Samsung ML 1610 from the MBP using the CUPS link. on sending the test page to the printer it activates but does not print the test page. It does not print any documents pages either. Incidentally the drop down list in the CUPS link did not show my model so I clicked the next nearest printer the Samsunb ML 1630. The same thing happens on connecting with my office Cannon LBP 2900 using the CUPS link. Neither printer prints! both are shared, there are no firewall issues, please help.

    thanks

    Ashish

    I used to be able to print to a Canon printer shared on a Windows computer from my MBP, but then it stopped working a while back. Now I can't get it to work at all, and if I try to print, it leaves a document stuck in the Windows queue that keeps even local users from printing until I go in and remove it from the queue.

    Make sure you have the latest printer driver update. In SL they should come through Software Update.
