    That's usually a firewall issue. Do you have a firewall enabled on any of your computers anywhere in your network? If so, try disabling it for testing purposes.

    The XP machine has the firewall on and it accesses it fine, I turned off the firewall on Win7 and it still gave me the same error.

    I turned off the Win7 Firewall again and rebooted the machine, went to the Ubuntu machine and tried again and it still will not let me in..... I attached the SMB.CONF in text format a couple posts ago if you would like to have a look...... thanks dmizer!

    For some reason, I've been seeing this mistake quite frequently lately. Please comment out this line by putting a semicolon ";" in front of it:
    Code:
    ;   dns proxy = no
    Restart Samba, or reboot after making this change.

    First of all, have you been through all the fixes in the first post in this thread? If not, do so.

    A couple of minor changes I can suggest to your smb.conf files.

    On both HDS-Linux and NetLinBox, look for this line:
    Code:
    ;   name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast
    and add this line directly below it:
    Code:
       name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host
    On HDS-Linux, remove this line:
    Code:
       usershare owner only = false
    Reboot after making these changes.
    Yes I had tryed those fixes before. How ever, those few minor changes you suggested fixed the problem!!!! Thank you!!

    Take a look here and see if it helps:

    Also I think you may get more useful help about having the printer on Ubuntu and sharing it with windows here:
