"Server" GX270 computer running WindowsXP.

Client GX270s also running Windows XP

S2500 printer connected via USB to server computer.

Printer works fine from local server computer.

Is shared (using standard windows printer sharing) across the wireless network.

Printer is seen OK from client computers, and no error messages when trying to print.

Document (test page) gets dropped in the printer queue on the server computer but doesnt do anything.

If the user reboots, the page is then printed.

Has not got latest windows updates, is updating on both server and client as we speak.
