Samba is not required to print from Windows XP client via CUPS.

How did you obtain this URL.

The best way to obtain the URL is to simply open
http://server:631/printers

The main page contains a link for all installed printers. Open the
link
for
your printer, and the resulting URL is the URL that Windows XP should
be
configured to use.
That is exactly how I did.

This is very unlikely. HP not shipping a Windows driver for your
printer
is
just as likely as me winning the lottery. You most certainly have the
drivers for your HP printer on a CD. After you've specified the URL
when
setting up the CUPS printer in Windows XP, you'll be asked to select a
driver. Select the appropriate driver from the CD. The last component
of
the
CUPS URL has absolutely nothing to do with the driver name.

It seems this time you won the race! There's a lot of models, but not my printer. So, I choose HP DeskJet without any model. Now I have either error in the error log or 'success' entry, but nothing happens (no printing made). Is it Window$ bug or something?
