Access to Windows 7 printer

I'm not able to access a printer attached to a Windows 7 server.
My linux box:
  • Fedora 13.
  • Samba + Samba-client + samba-winbind + samba-winbind-clients installed
  • Firewall: Samba & samba-client as Trusted Services
  • SELinux disabled.

My windows 7 box:
  • Workgroup active
  • Homegroup active and joined.
  • Password protected sharing turned off in both Home & Work and Public profiles.
  • Guest account active.
  • Using 128-bit encription for sharing.

What I tried to do:
  1. Run system-config-printer.
  2. Add new printer.
  3. Select Device -> Network Printer -> Windows Printer via SAMBA.
  4. SMB Printer -> Browse
  5. SMB Browser: finds workgroup and server all right.
  6. Clicking on workgroup, alter almost 1 minute asks for Username, Domain and Password.
  7. Nothing I enter works...

Can anyone help me out here?
