I have a windows xp print server where other XP machines on the network print to any of the three printers just fine, though on the windows 7 machine i can see the printer though cannot connect as i recieve this error

"Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000709). double check the printer name and make sure that the printer is connected to the network."

I've enabled printer sharing and lowered the security in many places on the windows 7 machine as well as the simple file/printer sharing on the windows xp machine.
