Method 1 - SMB - pending

authentication not working in 10.x, 12.x


using pre-verify or authenticate when job held

if you run in command line, you can actually connect with the second syntax. 
   $ smbclient // 
   Enter username's password: 
   session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE 
   $ smbclient \\\\\\printqueue -U 'DEACNET\username' 
   Enter DEACNET\username's password: 
   Domain=[DEACNET] OS=[Windows Server (R) 2008 Standard 6002 Service Pack   2] Server=[Windows Server (R) 2008 Standard 6.0] 
   smb: \> 

but in print various GUIs, doesn't matter how you type the credential (none of the username:password@ syntax, or put WORKGROUP/DOMAIN in smb.conf works), it just fails.  CUPS must not doing it right pass the info to samba. 

Method 2a - LPD - pending

wrong driver - only with built-in 72xx, 73xx series PPD - works, can print to \\xerox or \\print

won't work if using Xerox's PPD file 5.311.0.0 2013/02/12 (.EXE extract from Windows machine) printer makes noise, nothing come out

Method 3a - Xerox package - IP

WorkCentre 7835 - Xeroxv5Pkg-Linixx86_64-5.15.497.2463.deb 2013/09/06 (no PPD, just .so)

xeroxprtdrv 80.9MB - "The package is of bad quality - The installation of a package which violates the quality standards isn't allowed. This could cause serious problems on your computer ..." use at your own risk.

xeroxlogmgr, xeroxprint, xeroxprtmgr, xeroxquemgr

sudo xeroxprtmgr


it will create two queues, do not use the one starts with _, it will just stuck or not print

Method 3b - Xerox package - lpd to server - does not work

there is an active ticket about this problem
