Setting up a remote printer
Posted on 2002-07-10
I have a server that is running Metaframe 1.8 on Windows 2000.
I have a remote user that is running Windows XP. When I try to set up a printer on the server for the remote XP machine, I get the error message "The printer driver you selected is either not compatible with your current version of Windows, or it may not be available. Select a compatible driver from the list, or contract your administrator for help" when I choose the driver.
The printer is a HP 2200. The driver is the latest driver available. The 2000 driver works fine on 2000. The XP driver works fine on XP. I can not get the XP driver to work on 2000 for the remote printer.
Is there some update that I need to run on my 2000 box?
This server is about to be retired. It is only running SP1. For various reasons I can not upgrade to SP2. If there is an update, what is the specific hotfix (please don't say install sp2)?
