Network Printers using 98se and ME can't see printer on XP PC...
Posted on 2005-04-06
I have a pc connected to a printer which is shared over a network. Suddenly, it can only now accept print requests from other XP equipped printers not the few in the office running 98SE and ME.
Before we noticed this the printer was accessible to everybody and the only thing that has changed is that a problem on the xp pc with the printer installed was inadvertedly set to print from the MS Document Image printer for a while which caused 100% usage of its CPU.
When the problem was sorted, SP2 was installed onto the pc, could this have caused the problem?
I have turned off the Windows firewall and the McAfee NIS which hasn't made any difference..
