How to install network printer on Small Business Server
Posted on 2009-07-02
Hello, we have a small business server with several networked printers. Most users use the centrally located networked printers, however in one office I am trying to share a printer between two colleagues, I installed an HP PSC 500 printer on one system (Vista) then shared the printer. The other computer in the office is XP, when I try to add the printer to the XP system I get the following error. "Cannot connect to the printer either you have typed the name incorrectly or the printer has lost its connection to the server." When I go to printers and faxes on the XP system I can see the printer, but get the error when trying to attach it.
I haven't had to do this in a while and am wondering what I am forgetting :)
You don't need to install a driver for XP (according to HP) do I need to install it on the server?
Also the printer is using a parallel port, not a USB.
