Printer problems on home network

  al1234 07:49 30 Jul 2003

After installing a home network with two computers using Windows XP on both PC?s, my X73 Lexmark printer with not print on the second PC. I have been through the process of installing the drivers on the second PC but when it comes to print there is an error message stating CANNOT COMMUNICATE WITH THE PRINTER. I have 600k broadband and that works great on both PCs but there is a problem with sharing documents as well as the printer problem, if anyone has any ideas on these problems please help?

Have you got a firewall running? With Norton I had to configure it to allow sharing as the default settings block it. I presume you have set the printer and folders to share.
