Sharing a local printer over the network
Posted on 2009-04-15
I'm using two Windows Vista 32 bit machines, and I have a HP LaserJet 1012 attached via USB to one machine. The printer works fine on the machine that it is physically connected to. I have turned on network sharing for the printer. I have tried to open the computer's shared resources from my other computer, which indeed shows me the printer. However, when I try to access that printer in any way from the remote computer, I get an error message that says "Operation could not be completed (0x00000709) . Make sure that you have typed the name correctly, and that the printer is connected to a network."
Both the computer and the printer are turned on and ready to go. Both computers are connected to the network. Any help is greatly appreciated.
