RE: Printer on Vista, not sharing on XP, wired router
I did it in reverse. I've got the printer set up on the XP comp. I opened
printers in XP, and right-clicked on it to share, then Ok. Went to the Vista
comp, went into network, and clicked on "add printer". It finds the printer,
and loads the drivers, and then lets you print a test page. AOK. Trust me to
do it in reverse, but it works!
