Hi All

One for the printer guru's. I  have an issue with magicolor 5430DL installed on xp box. The printer is fine but when share on small workgroup cannot get the printer to work over network (Note attached via USB)

Some points.
1. Re-installed printer issue persisted
2.I can connect to the printer on the client machine. i,e, comes up in printer control pannel as ready
3. I can get the properties of the printer over the network
4. When I print test page nothing ....

I am putting in a network point shortly but in the mean time just need the printer to accept from local  share the option you detailed is the best fit solution but any thoughs on resloving under current share
Can you print from the sharing PC? When you print from a client, does the job stay in the queue or disappear?
The sharing pc is printing fine it prints via usb. The share name shares on the network and am able to get properties of the printer from the client pc just disappears when printing to share
About all I can suggest is to remove the driver completely from both PCs and reinstall. To completely remove a driver, go to Start > Printers and Faxes. Delete the driver. Then go to the File menu and select Server Properties. Click on the Drivers tab and remove the printer from there.
Sorry for the delay in closing the question. I have chosen to to use the NIC in the printer as suggested. I have some wiring to do so its a better fit anyway regardless of issue. Thanks you for comprehensive answer
