Help on Sharing Printer from Win2k to WinXP
Posted on 2003-02-25
I have a laptop with XP. When I try to add a printer and browse the network, the machine names show up, but I cannot see the printer that is shared on a machine running Win2k. It has no problem recognizing printers shared on Win98 machines, but can't seem to find the ones shared on the Win2k machines. I also have no problem seeing the printers shared on the Win2k machine from a Win98 machine. My only problem is I can't get them to show up on the XP machines. Is there a new setting I am missing? I have already tried reloading software, renaming printers and checked to see that the spooler service was started. Not really sure where to go from here, any help would be greatly appreciated.
