Cannot Print Through My network
epster2 Feb-14-01 07:58 PM
I recently networked my laptop to my desktop. I have them both going through a hub. My network seems fine I can shre anything on both computers. My problem is that I cannot print from my laptop. I have a HP 712c that is connected to my desktop which prints just fine. But every time I try to print form my laptop I get a communication error. Now I have my desktop configured to share the printer and had my laptop use the HP as the default printer over the network. The drivers load just fine, I even loaded the drivers once from the setup disk that came from the printer. It sees the priinter but cannot communicate with it. Please help. thanks

See if you can turn-off bi-directional printing. Older versions of the HP software allowed that; I understand that newer versions do not. Larry
