Adding a network printer
Posted on 2006-07-07
I have one windows 98 client that I am having troubles with. I have not used 98 in a networking world, and is far different than XP. I simply am trying to print to a networked printer. It is a laserjet 4050. It is installed as a local printer on a ACITSLPR_1 port which has the IP address of the printer. When I try to print to it, I get this error:
There was an error writing to ACITSLPR_1 for the printer (HP Laserjet 4050): The system cannot write to the specified device.
It will print a few lines of text to the printer, and then that error comes up on the computer.
I tried to install this as a network printer, but it always tells me it is offline, even though it is not. In fact, if I go to \\printserver, all I can see is the shares. Normally it would show the shared printers as well.
Anybody have any ideas?
