This SHOULD be possible, I think. Computer #1 has the HP Officejet 570 connected locally. All three computers are part of a home LAN via a 5-port hub. Nothing fancy -- all 3 are running Windows 98 and the LAN works fine. File and print sharing is enabled on computer #1.
Computers #2 and #3 can print to the 570, but they cannot set any characteristics (ie, "Econoprint" or "Best Quality"), and cannot SCAN from this printer.
My son found a FAQ on the HP web pages that say one should install the "Microsoft-written HP550C driver", but installing that driver on computer #1 (where the printer is locally connected) does not allow me to print to that printer from ANY computer, getting an error message about "invalid input stream to printer" or something like that.
Regardless of whether the HP550C kludge is the best way to do this or not, is it possible to allow all three computers to access the full capabilities of this printer? If the HP550C kludge is the right way to accomplish it, how do you make that work?
