If I run

smbclient -L 192.168.1.110

I get the following. Note that it doesn't matter what I enter when it
prompts for root password.

Enter root's password:
session request to 192.168.1.110 failed (Called name not present)
Domain=[TALOFA01] OS=[Windows 7 Ultimate 7601 Service Pack 1]
Server=[Windows 7 Ultimate 6.1]

I removed some of the output, but it shows the printers I want to
access, but can't.
