Bi-directional print server?

by rhandkb42 / August 10, 2005 11:22 PM PDT

Using 3 HP computers - one Desktop PC and two laptops. Trying to share one printer, an HP PSC 1350V all in one. Using a Netgear PS121 Mini-Print Server and all the computers are also hooked into a Netgear FVS318 VPN.

All the computers can send things to the printer with no problem, but need to have bi-directional capability for scans.

Any suggestions?

only suggestion available...

is one you probably won't like - get a new all-in-one designed with network capability built-in (prices start at $500). The older all-in-one devices lose both the "all" and the "in" and become just "one" (print) when placed on a print server. Just the way it works, can't be fixed.

You need a printer/scanner that comes with this capabilty. Adding it later is painful for those that will not use Linux or other type servers...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
