I have a HP Officejet pro K850dn, windows server 2003 enterprise, netgear fsm750 switches and cat 5e cabling.
Recently, the printer broke down, so i uninstalled the printer software from the server and ordered a replacement unit. when it arrived, i went through the setup exactly the same as i did before (when it worked).
This time however, the printer wont share.
I go into Printers & Faxes > Printer (properties) > sharing > Share printer as "HPA3" > select "list in directory" and then click apply > ok
the little hand icon does not appear under the printer, and on next entering the printer properties, i always find the printer never shared itself.
This is really urgent, and although the solution is probably simple, its still worth 500 points to you
