Networking Printers

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?T0o=?=, Jan 29, 2006.

  1. I have two pc's running on windows xp and have tried networking them by
    running the network wizard on both systems. When i try to add a printer
    through the network, i can select the desired printer but when i click next,
    i am told that the printer has lost it's connection to the server. When i try
    adding a networked printer from the other system i have no problems.
    Is there anything i can do?

  2. make sure your firewall isnt' blocking any connections for shared resources.
    Try putting a rule to allow anything originating on the same subnet through
    (i.e. 192.168.0.0 PASS)
