Can anyone offer any meaningful guidance for getting an Ubuntu Desktop 
(14.04.2) to print (via cups) over http to a Windows Server 2012 machine.
The windows box has "Internet Printing" installed and an HP MFD M630 
attached as a shared network printer.

I can view the printer using http://server/printers from both the 
windows box and the Ubuntu box.

On the Ubuntu box I have cups 1.7.2 installed and HPLIP 3.14.2 installed 
(I don't think HPLIP is actually needed for printing but I did use it to 
identify the appropriate PPD file).  I have added the printer using the 
URL http://server/printers/printer_name/.printer.
However, when I print (from chrome) to the printer I usually end up with 
a print job stuck in the queue on the Ubuntu box with a status of "Held 
for Authentication".  Using right-click Authenticate and supplying valid 
domain credentials does not help.
On the Windows box we have tried setting authentication to "Windows 
authentication", to "Basic authentication" and to "anonymous" but still 
cannot get a print jobs to run successfully.
I need to get http working for this, rather than Samba, as the end game 
will involve using https.

Any/all help much appreciated.
