Cannot Connect To Printer Across The LAN
Posted on 2008-10-28
I have installed an HP Deskjet 3930 printer on a classroom pc. I have shared it for everyone to use.
I can print from the local pc. When trying to add it to another computer as a network printer, it first asks for a username and password. It will not accept anything I enter as valid. Even Domain Admin.
It then times out and says it is not accessible. This printer used to be attached to a laptop in the server room. When one of the teachers printers broke, I gave her this one and bought a new one for myself. It worked fine when it was mine and I could access the share from anywhere.
Unless it is broken in some weird way, I am at a loss as to why it will not connect.
One other thing. Is is possible that somewhere their is a record of this being attached to my laptop, and that record is causing problems when trying to access it?
I have tried this printer on 2 different PCs. Same problem each time. The printer was installed as the local admin on the computer. Then I logged in as the classroom and tried to connect, but no go. I even tried it from my pc. Notta. Please advise. Thanks.
