Hi,
I have a network of 4 computers.  Two on XP Pro, One 98SE and One on 2000Pro.

Problem is that I can not see the printer that is attached to the 2000 machine, I can see the one that is on the 98 machine, and print to it fine, but no luck finding the one on the 2000 when I try and add a printer.

The printer is set as shared.  This computer used to be running 98SE and the printer worked fine then.

Any Ideas appriciated.

Thanks people out there

on the 2000 Computer, check the TCP/IP properties.  Click "Advanced" and goto the WINS tab.  "enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP" should be enabled.

What permissions do you have on your share?  Is the guest account disabled?

Can you see the printer if you navigate to it via Network Neighborhood?
