Vista SP1, Netgear PS101v1 Print Server... cannot configure printer
Here is my problem. I have three computers on my home network.

1x Vista Business SP1, Ethernet connection to a DGL-4300 router, UAC
turned off (AVG 8.0 Suite w/Link Check turned off)

1x Vista Home Premium SP1, Ethernet connection to a DGL-4300 router,
UAC active (Norton 360 v1)

1x XP Home SP3, Ethernet connection to a DGL-4300 router (AVAST).
Note: This box also dual boots into Ubuntu 8.04 (Linux "Hardy").

1x NETGEAR PS101v1 print server connected to the parallel port of a
Samsung SCX-4100 (print only. Scanning is through the USB port)

The XP machine can find and print to the network printer.

Neither of the Vista machines can successfully accept the
printer/server. They find the printer, but I get an error message:

Printers > Add Printer > Add a network printer > (finds) PP1 on
SCX-4100 > Next > "Connecting to PP1 on Scx-4100" > ERROR: "Windows
cannot connect to the printer. Make sure that you have typed the name
correctly, and that the printer is connected to the network".

The only way I can get the Vista Home Premium box to print is to
configure it to print via the VISTA Business computer. The latter is
connected to the USB port of the printer.

I tried deleting the printer and reconfiguring it via the XP computer
as it is the only one that can talk to the print server. No matter how
I try, I get "ScanServer MFC Application has stopped working" message
when I try to start the server application from any of the two Vista

What am I missing? Print services, user rights? I read about AVG but
both Vista machines are using different packages.

Just a quick follow-up. I managed to get the printers to work. I had
to reinstall the NETGEAR printer and server applications on each Vista
computer then select a LOCAL printer as an IP printer. It refuses to
work if I try to access it as a LAN printer but it does work through
the LAN when I select a local IP printer... go figure. It was so
simple in XP.

Note --> I can only manage the print server via the XP computer. In
the meantime, I can see the status by entering
(print server address) and the status comes-up.
