Using XP Pro SP2, with 2 laptops running XP Home SP2.
Trying to get my 2 laptops to share my desktop printer (Epson Stylus CX6600 connected by USB).
After plenty of messing around, managed to get it installed onto one laptop.
Trying to print - the job gets sent to the printer (can view it using desktop) - the size usually shows a bit short, ie, 11.8Kb/12.6KB. The "Owner" of the job always says "Guest" - not sure if that makes a difference.
And so cannot print. I can print fine off the desktop itself, so printer is installed ok. Print spooler is on for both machines and they can ping each other no probs... File & Internet sharing is working fine between the machines.
Does anyone know why it's not sending the full job to print?
