Printer sharing from Vista client to Windows XP server
Hello
I tried to setup printer sharing on a windows XP desktop (connect to an HP
3745 Deskjet printer) and laptops that run either windows XP or Vista. The
windows XP laptops are able to print fine.

Print sorta works on the Vista laptop but not quite - the printout is on the
wrong side of the page and reversed (characters are reversed and print right
to left, so the document reads fine if you read it from the backside of the
page!). Is this a problem with the driver that the Vista laptop downloaded,
or something else? thanks for your thoughts

It sounds like you've got the wrong drivers. Go to HP's website and
download the correct drivers for Vista. Uninstall the ones you have and
install the latest ones. If you already did this and have the latest
ones, contact HP to see what they say.
