How to print to Linux's shared printer from Microsoft Window Vista?


New Member
I've just got new machine which is installed Microsoft Windows Vista. In my department, we have RedHat Linux Advance Server 2.1 as a File Server, Printer Server and much more.

The problem is: When I print a document from this new Vista machine I can just print only once. If I'd like to print another document, I have to re-boot this Vista machine. There are error messages shown as follow:

"\\ is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. The Server service is not started."

How to set the Vista machine to print to the Linux's shared printer without re-booting ?

I'm looking forward to hear from all of you.


ps. for more information about the Linux server I use:
Linux RedHat Advance Server 2.1 (kernal 2.4.9-e.3)
Samba 2.2.1a-a
