Two XP SP3 PC's can share files but printer sharing isn't working
Posted on 2012-03-28
I have two XP pcs which can share files but for some reason I can't connect the printer via IP. I'm usually able to connect easily but now for some reason I can't.
My pc, which is sharing the printer is 192.168.1.100
When I attempt to connect, I get the "device not found message".
The printer does not have an IP address. the PC it is connected to does. 192.168.1.100
Why would I be able to share files but not share a printer. It worked a while back (many months ago and I can't think of anything that happened since then.
Where should I look to repair this?
