I have two computers. The first one has windows and is connected to the printer. The second one has Lubuntu 14.04 which is connected in the same network as the Windows computer. I've installed the drivers for the EPSON L210 for Linux . But I'm unable to connect to the printer. When I run this command:

sudo smbclient -L // -U user -W workgroup

Note that the workgroup name is WORKGROUP and the network IP addressof the windows computer is The output gives this:

WARNING: The "syslog" option is deprecated

I suggest you look at CUPS rather than using smbclient.
