Cannot Print From ME Network Client Computers
Posted on 2002-05-15
I have three computers networked through a D-Link gateway, but cannot get the two client computers to print on the shared printer connected to the host.
I used to have the printer in a network where it was connected to the 95 computer (host) and the ME computer was the client and everything worked fine. Recently, I got an XP computer and moved the printer to the ME computer (as host). The network works fine except for the printer.
I updated the drivers from the HP website. When I got the XP computer, I ran the XP printer install wizard on each computer (from the XP CD on the 95 and ME) as directed by XP. The printer works okay from the ME computer (host), but will not print from either the 95 or XP computers. All three computers can see each other on the network and all three can see the printer on the ME computer.
I searched the HP website help files, but did not find the answer. I have been through the printer wizard and windows help/troubleshooting several times, but the two client computers simply won’t print. The 95 computer even shows the print job spooling (the XP does not). I connected the printer to the XP computer (without sharing it) and it worked fine.
This has me stumped. Thanks in advance for your help.
