Re: Printer sharing-another issue

I'm trying to get my laptop(vista home premium) to print . I have my
printer (Lexmark x8350) connected to the desktop(Vista Ultimate) via USB
and its shared. The laptop sees the printer cause its in the PRINTERS
folder (in the control panel) and its says READY on it. Its also set as
default printer . When I try to print a test page, It says page being
sent to the printer,Then I get an error message stating " no
communication to the printer . When I click on " ADD A PRINTER " I do it
like you guys said to. Click Local printer and stuff. Then I get install
driver window and I click on "install driver " but it stops responding
everytime I click on that button. The port that its suppose to be on is
in the PORT's tab. I have it setup to this " '\\computer'
(file://\\computer) name \ printer shared named " port. I aslo put both
of the IP ADDRESSes inside the Norton Internet Security. I could ping
both of the computers fine.
