Sharing a printer
Posted on 2014-01-12
I had the following situation - A computer with XP and a computer with Vista. Both connected to an home network. The XP box has a HP Laserjet 4000 N (an older printer) connection to a USB port. it uses a parallel to USB cable, I had shared the printer so that the Vista box could see it and use it. I remember it was a struggle to get this to work, issues with the drivers, sharing, etc.
Now, I replaced the XP box with a Windows 8 box. The Vista box can no longer see the printer. I shared it on the Windows 8 box, but when I try to add a printer on the Vista box, it does not see it. How can I fix this?
