Is the HP PSC 1315 All-in-one network capable?

I have just set up a wired ethernet network between an HP laptop (A) and an HP desktop (B) at home.

My HP PSC 1315 All-in-one is connected via USB to the laptop and has never been used with computer B.

I tried to print from computer B (which did have my laptop connetced HP PSC 1315 All-in-one as one of the printer selections) but recieved an error message along the lines of 'print spooler is not running'.

I was thinking all I have to do is download the latest PSC 1315 driver from HP support and install in on computer B and I will be able to print directly from computer B without having to open a shared file on computer A and print from there.

But I noticed at the full featured driver download page (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&os=228&product=374568&lang=en&softwareitem=mp-23606-2) it states: "This installation DOES NOT SUPPORT networked (Ethernet or wireless) installations."

Does this 100% mean I can't print from computer B?

Thanks

you must also share the printer on the network and configure computer b to use the shared printer on computer a

I think that HP is referring to the printer not being able to be hooked to a direct print server or wireless print server.

I had the same problem with my HP PSC.  I tried to hook it up to a USB print server that was connected directly to the network, but I could never get the drivers to use it like I would have liked.

I ended up hooking the printer up to my windows 2000 server and sharing out the printer.  Then I was able to connect to that printer through my server and print whatever I needed to it.  Be aware, that when you do this, that you can NOT use the scanning/faxing features from the remote computer.  Only on the computer that the PSC is hooked up via USB will these functions work.

As you saw on your "chat" question, here is an article for setting up printer sharing.
