WinME Network dosen't see printers
stevetag2 Mar-17-01 09:05 PM
Larry, I have two Win ME computers using a 4 port hub. I can see each other's hard drives, CD's, Zip drives and folders but I can not connect to each others printers.

I am using TCP/IP and NetBui, any ideas. One uses a USB NIC and the other a PC NIC.

If the printers work on the computer to which they are connected, the problem is probably in the sharing configuration. Click the File and Print Sharing command Button in Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network and make sure I want to be able to allow others to print to my printer(s) checkbox is checked and share them per http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/net2pc/printer.htm. Then setup the each network printer on the computer not directly connected to the printer by double-clicking the printer in My network Places, clicking the File menu, and then clicking Install.

Larry, Dont you also have to do start, settings, printers, right click on the printer choose sharing, and then shared as? I goofed on this one on one of the client machines, couldnt figure out why I couldnt print.

Yes. That's what the link in my last post shows how to do with screen shots. Larry

Thanks guys, I knew it had to be something I forgot, was just running tired I guess - as always, I know where to come for the answers.
