Ok, still trying to get vl to print to my windows shared lexmark x1185. If the printer is directly connected to the vl box it works, but samba is giving me troubles  Shocked
version = VL5.8 SOHO
http://localhost:631 will not work - however http://localhost:631/admin does!
After doing a printer install, when I do a test print I get the "Unable to connect to CIFS host"
Searching on google I found the below link that was said to be an excellent article, but it is missing!
Can anyone re-post that link, or otherwise help?

Ok, I couldn't find any reason for not being able to print to the remote printer, got disgusted and deleted the printer, then re-installed it. I'm now able to print.
I'll ignore the problem of http://localhost:631 not working!

BTW: thanks for all the helpful replies!

Have you tried http://localhost:631/

The trailing slash seems to make a difference. Let us know if that helps.

Don't help - however http://localhost:631/admin will work. If I click the "Home" option there then I get the 404, but all other options seem to work. It is usable as is, just have to remember to put in the admin!  Grin
(Thanks for the suggestion Granny!)
