I am having problems printing to the printer connected to my (SBS2003) business's network. The Printer is a Sharp MX-M314N. All Windows computers on the network can print to it fine, just my ubuntu machine that won't.

I know the IP of the printer and I can ping it and even print files from it by going to 192.168.0.50 in firefox and uploading a file.

If I do an nmap on the IP of the printer and the server I get this:

jamesmaddison@development:~$ nmap 192.168.0.50

And when I do a 'smbclient' I get the following:

I have tried the following protocols in CUPS:

smb://MASTERMAGNETS/SBSSRV/Sharp%20MX-M314N/
smb://jamesmaddison:password@MASTERMAGNETS/SBSSRV/Sharp%20MX-M314N/
socket://192.168.0.50:9100
ipp://192.168.0.50/ipp?version=1.0
lpd://192.168.0.50/lp

and all of the "Discovered Printers" that CUPS lists. (They're dnssd protocols)

I have also tried adding the printer through lpadmin:

jamesmaddison@development:~$ lpadmin -p SharpPrinter -v smb://jamesmaddison:password@MASTERMAGNETS/SBSSRV/Sharp%20MX-M314N/ -P /usr/share/cups/model/sharp/en/Sharp_MX-M314N.ppd

smbstatus always reports no processes (I just get table headers). I don't know if that's important but it seems suspicious to me.

The [printers] section of my smb.conf is pretty much the default:

[printers]
   comment = All Printers
   browseable = no
   path = /var/spool/samba
   printable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   read only = yes
   create mask = 0700

Here's what the CUPS error log says for the last job I tried.

Here's the result of snmp with CUPS_DEBUG_LEVEL=2 http://pastebin.com/CarHtA9q

And I often get a notification saying "Printer Error: printer error Printer Name: connecting-to-device"

I just can't get it to work, the problem seems to be between Cups and the windows server as if I go to 192.168.0.50:9100 in firefox the printer prints the GET header it receives. I can also go to 192.168.0.50 and upload a file directly to the printer. Lastly I can ftp into the printer and upload files that way.


As requested lpstat -d and lpstat -t

jamesmaddison@development:~$ lpstat -d

jamesmaddison@development:~$ lpstat -t

As far as I can see, your CUPS log only lists web config events like accessing the CUPS configuration page (marked with CGI). Could you try to post the logs while not using the web interface? –  gertvdijk Jul 14 '13 at 10:54
    
@gertvdijk I've updated the log –  Lerp Jul 15 '13 at 7:46

It's a lot of output and it shows a lot more actions than just sending a job. For example I see Calling DeleteDevice(cups-Sharp_MX-M314N). So please explain what you're doing in there and please try to keep a minimum of log lines appearing around the time you encounter your issue. –  gertvdijk Jul 15 '13 at 7:50
    
@gertvdijk I'm not sure why that's showing up. All I did was open system-config-printer and selected the printer and pressed Print Test Page and copied the output from today as this was the first thing I did. –  Lerp Jul 15 '13 at 7:53
    
@gertvdijk Okay I've updated the log again, I turned the log level down a notch and did sudo lp test.txt. Sorry for messing you around. –  Lerp Jul 15 '13 at 8:20

You could try to set "create mask" to 0775 - also :

create mask = 0775

0700 would mean here - only admin may print - am not sure how you tried to print - from home over phone-line at firm as admin ?

Do you need permission to print to this printer? (like a secured network resource) is the networking interface of the printer open? can you view what the printer is doing when your job gets denied? Is this a shared" pritner like a usb printer on an windows machine, vs an actual networked printer? Hows your firewall doing? is your firewall blocking traffic? cyberciti.biz/faq/… nmap tells me that both UNIX LPD (port 515) and JetDirect (aka IPP) port 9100 are unsupported. Can you change that? –  j0h Jul 15 '13 at 19:34
    
@j0h It's an actual network printer. There's no internal firewall. –  Lerp Jul 16 '13 at 11:42
    
oh weird, i must have miss-read that, I thought ports 9100, and 515 were not open. can we see lpstat -d and lpstat -t ? –  j0h Jul 18 '13 at 3:08
    
incidentally, are you running Ubuntu server? Why are you trying to use samba as opposed to IPP? have you tried assigning the printer a generic driver, or are you using the OEM driver tinyurl.com/nbg2qnb –  j0h Jul 18 '13 at 3:32
    
@j0h I'm using the OEM driver. I have tried both Samba and IPP, neither work. –  Lerp Jul 19 '13 at 12:39
