XP to Vista Printer Sharing

Hey guys. Was wondering if you could help me with this problem. I'm
trying to use a printer through the network, but I have the XP (desktop)
computer connected to the printer.

I found a good tutorial ('Printer sharing between XP and Vista'
(http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Print...a-t156394.html))
that unfortunately, didn't solve the problem. The Vista system still
isn't detecting the printer through the network.

I am using the correct drivers (vista 64 bit) and have the printer
sharing enabled on the xp computer. Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Re: XP to Vista Printer Sharing
Most Vista printer sharing issues can be fixed by adding it as local printer
first and the map it as networking printer. This search result may help too.
