I have some win95 workstations which can access shared folders on two windows 2000 Pcs and vice versa. However I cannot get the win95 Pcs to access a shared printer connected off the back of a win2000 PC. What do I need to configure/check.

PS

The other win2000 Pc can access the printer. As far as I know they all member of the same workgroup.

1) Make sure the printer share permissions are set correctly - You may want to add the win95 users to the printer manager group as a test.

2) Get the winsock 2 update and any other relevant patches.
