Printer Sharing

Hi Guys.

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.  

Any ideas?

This is really urgent, and although the solution is probably simple, its still worth 500 points to you

Did you install it as a local printer or a network printer? It should be installed as a local printer with a TCP/IP port. Try deleting and re-creating the TCP/IP port.
