Hi Guys, I would like to share a fix I ran into with leopard when setting up my network printer.

I currently run a Brother MFC-440CN, what I had to do instead of going through System Prefrences -> Print & Fax

Is manually configure it by going to my web browswer and type http://localhost:631/ or if that doesn't work type http://127.0.0.1:631/ fill out the information this is the graphic utility for CUPS.

For the Samba URI simply type this;

smb://ipaddressofwindowsmachine/printername

And that should do the trick.
QUOTE Thanks
