Printer Sharing
Not Vista, but both sides... XP and Windows 7. This is the only "Sharing"
place found.
On the 7 machine I have a printer that is shared, but it can not be seen by
the
XP machine. On the XP machine I do a Add Printer, the 7 machine name is
found
but there are no printers there to select.

Both machines are in the same workgroup.

Any thoughts, or suggestion for a more appropriate newsgroup?

Earl

Re: Printer Sharing
In the Windows 7, run "net share" and in the XP run "net view
\\'windows7IPaddresse'". Post back the result here.
