Cannot Print to Networked Printer
Hi all, yet another network printer problem with much teh same title.
Here's the catch... Where everyone else is trying to connect to a networked
printer on an XP machine, I'm running two Vista machines with Vista Basic.
There are two machines networked (comp1 & comp2). Comp 2 has a wired link to
the printer and is as such the print server.
When I try to print from comp 1 I get an "error-sent to printer" message in
the printer dialoge box.
I also get a notification from Norton Anti Virus that a "attack to your
computer from (comp 2 IP address) has been blocked" pop up. (Yes I hate
Norton too, work computer, not my choice). Short of completely diasbling
Norton (it's shouldn't be a fire wall anyway, it's only an anti virus) I've
done everything I can in the way of setting permissions and modifiying rules
in the Norton console.
If I log onto com 2 from comp 1 I can print, but this to me defeates the
purpose of having a networked printer. I shouldn't have to log onto another
computer to use the printer. In any other environment I might not have those
