On vista machine printer is connected however when jobs are sent to the printer it sits in the queue until restart.
Same problem I'am having, job sits in queue if I print from a networked machine and it won't print until I restart. I get the error messages also. This happens on my Windows 7 machines using Homegroups. My printer is very old so I'm not too surprized, it's not the HP 1020 but the symptoms are the same. The driver package I was using did say that network printing may not work properly in Windows 7.
Looks like the method linked to above works for the HP 1020 anyway, although it seems to be more of a work around.
