installed the printer onto the XP computer? You need to goto the Printers folder and click Add new printer, or use the software that came with the printer to install the drivers.
Also, do you have a separate firewall on your XP computer? If so, I believe you have to allow Spooler SubSytem App access through the firewall.
I have a printer an Epson LQ-1170 installed on a Windows 98 machine which I want to share with my new Windows XP machine (via a hub network).
Unfortunately the XP machine can't "see" the LQ-1170 and so I can't share the printer.
Could anyone give me guidance about what to do?
I realise that probably the easy answer would be to connect the Epson to the XP machine and share it with the 98 machine but I already have a printer connected to XP (a Canon LPB 8 Mark iv).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I am not too technically minded (as you may have guessed)
