Printing problem

::I would appreciate any help on this, I’m trying to connect my Vista
laptop to a printer attached to a XP PC (this is using wireless), I can
search on the laptop for the printer and it can see it, however when you
click on it, the message “Windows cannot connect to the printer. Access
is denied”, appears.::
:: ::
::I do have the correct drivers for the Vista laptop, and I have file
and print sharing setup on the laptop and on the PC. (unless I have
missed something with the Vista laptop, however I doubt it).::
:: ::
::I have tried adding a local port, and this doesn’t work either, and
the same message “Windows cannot connect to the printer. Access is
denied”, appears.::
:: ::
::Any advice would be gratefully received.::

Re: Printing problem
from the Vista machine open a Command Prompt

type

dir \\XPmachine\print$

do you get access denied or the list of driver folders?


E:\>dir \\remote\print$
Volume in drive \\remote\print$ has no label.


Directory of \\remote\print$
