Sorry repeating everything, but this is not easy for me to grasp.
1. Your url with the hostname uses the name of the pc not the IP-number, 
e.g. May I ask, why so?
2. Using Samba, is it possible to get in contact with the 
ubuntu/XPmachine part Ubuntu? I haven't made the installation with 
changes in Windows for Samba.
3. When I do this http://localhost:631/printers I will get the name of 
the Brotherprinter, but even with the notation URL:    and it says at the same time "network 
host is busy
4. I will try the smb://  and see how it turns out to be.

Thanks so far
