I have googled my problem and searched this forum, but I can not find a resolution to my problem. I have had my iMac printing remotely to a printer connected to a windows laptop successfully for the past few days. Google helped me get this set up as well. Previously, I lost my ability to print with a message that I had a invalid printer name. I was able to get this connection back. Now after a few days I have the same problem, invalid printer name, even though I made no changes to my settings and it just stopped working. I have tried several things: *reentering my smb// settings. *shortening the name of my printer (it was originally 9 letters) *Going in to CUPS to see if there was a conflict or problem there. *Rebooting both computers to see if it just needed to start fresh. *Deleting and reinstalling the printer on the windows laptop with a fresh share name. I am at a loss as to why my printer settings stop recognizing the printer name from the shared computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks from the newbie.
