Samba Printer Name Formatting Question

Postby Vontux on Thu Mar 07, 2013 10:26 pm

Hi, I've been trying unsuccessfully to add a printer attached to a Windows 7 pc on my LAN. I am not experienced with SAMBA, so I am likely doing something wrong when I attempt to add the printer on mint. Below is how the address of the printer looks from a windows 7 pc on the network
Code: Select all
\\NAMEOF-PC\Canon MP495 series Printer

How should I format the above string for the printer address in SAMBA? I am assuming my lack of experience is the problem here, so any help from experienced SAMBA users would be greatly appreciated.
