    Windows printers
    Hi all

    Just got my first mac I currently have a HP Laserjet printer connected to my PC & is shared via that pc. I have managed to connect my Mac to that printer but when I print it is giving me an error "On Hold(Authorisation Required)"

    I did a quick google & found that I need to set up the printer as "smb//username:password@pcname/sharename

    So I have done that but still get the error even after trying as a guest & as the usernames that were setup

    what model printer?
    I just had a three hour headache due to an HP Laserjet that I have.
    Some of their laserjets use xqx and for whatever reason HP didn't enable wireless in the driver, but it worked just fine with windows.

    its a laserjet 1020. I have installed it using the 1022 gutenprint drivers (1020 & 1022 drivers are interchangable)
