Shot in the dark here, but maybe you need to authenticate to the windows server's active directory.

I have been having some problems getting this to work, I was hoping
someone might have some input on the subject.
Description of the Problem:
I am trying to connect to my departments central print server from my
Fedora 7 Laptop + CUPS.
As far as I can tell the Server (I assume the latest version of windows
server) is running the Windows Internet Printing Protocol.
What I have tried:
I can connect to the server through firefox and browse the printers.
I have to log in with my UF username and password. So I assume there has
to be authentication with the print server.
I have also tried the following with the CUPS web interface and the
gnome GUI for cups.
I have been trying to connect through cups using the Internet printing
protocol (ipp). I have tried the following.
I figured the above did not satisfy the authentication needs so I tried
[log in to unmask]" target="_blank">http://username:[log in to unmask]<description>/.printer
This did not work, and I assume it is sending my username and password
in clear text, so I did not like doing this.
I have also tried using samba
What I have not tried:
I have not messed with any of the *.conf files. I assume since I am not
trying to serve a printer I don't need to adjust anything in cupsd.conf
and as far as I could tell printers.conf has no only setting that I have
added through the gui
I don't know if any one has messed with this on either side
(workstation/server) but I would appreciate any input. I am really in
the dark when it comes to cups and windows servers. I am kind of stuck
on how the server is set up, I don't want to deal with our IT guy.
