Description Berend De Schouwer 2015-12-14 12:31:07 UTC
smbspool man page lists four types of logins, but it does not list an example for the type of login I need to perform in Cups to be able to print.

I need to login to the domain, so I need to add a URI like:

%5C => \

so this becomes "domain\user:pass@server"

No other attempts for domain logins have worked.

Can I submit a patch to add the example to the man page?
