Cannot add printer on Vista

We have a W2K3 Printer server on which some HP 4000n are installed. These
work alright from our XP machines but from my Vista client I get the
following message when I try to add them to the system:

Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation could not be completed
(error 0x00000006).

What might be wrong?

Re: Cannot add printer on Vista
Create a share using the HP 4000 drivers that ship on W2K3. I suspect that
your current driver is from HP.


error 6 is invalid handle

Nope,

I tried the W2K3 drivers but the result is the same :-(
