Hi,

I want to share a Printer attached to an XP Pro, The printer is shared and prints ok from a W2K workstation.

My problem is with W´98. The MS Client is loaded , and logged with a user name, File and Print share is enabled, I can see the XP server but when i try to open the folder to show the printer I receive a message that the resource cannot be accesed.

Any idea out there ?

Thanks in advance,

Ernesto Fox

Sounds like permissions.

The 98 client is logging on with the same user account info as set up on the XP box?

Also the 98 account is logging on with Client For Microsoft Networks (which is also set as the primary logon) and not just Windows logon or something else.

Also the Windows 98 machine isn't loggin on automatically is it? If so, disable that too.

Finally, I solved the problem, the culprit was the IPX/SPX protocol.

I installed another machine from scratch and compared the two.

This one had only one protocol: TCP/IP. The one that couldn't  see the printer also had Netbeui and IPX/SPX. Removing these two, solved the problem.

On the test machine, I added the IPX/SPX compatible protocol, and once again the problem appeared.


Thanks.
