network printer over vpn connection problem
Posted on 2007-04-07
I have an xp pro system and a win server 2003 tied together over the internet with a Cisco point to point VPN connection.
On the XP system i have defined a shared printer named canon. From the server 2003 system I can see the printer in network places explorer. However, I can not connect to it. I get the msg
"Either the printer name was incorrectly typed, or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server"
I can get to shared files, and mapped drives just fine. Only the printer function is not working.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
