Printer

I copied and pasted the highlited address you had in your post was there anything else to go with it.? The port the Epson is under on the XP comp is this USB-virtual printer Port.

I also would try turning off Windows Firewall on both machines, or any 3rd party firewalls as this has also had an effect on me and my printer sharings. Please note on windows 7 2 firewalls exist, the local and network fire wall. Both may need to be disabled. If this does not solve your issue, perhaps a hardware issue exists?

A hardware problem like what.? If the printer works plugged into the Win 7RC comp and don't when I unplug it, then it has to be the XP comp is not sharing, or the Win 7RC comp is not getting the right address to share it. I feel myself it is not getting the right port address.

Thanx...Gunny

Well I have just for experimental purposes setup my XP machine to share a printer with my Windows 7 Machine. Both are part of the same workgroup, and both have firewalls disables. I have the USB cable to my HP photosmart C 5150 plugged into my XP machine, and I have it network shared with share name hp. I have applied the share with no issues. I have been sure to check all connections and cables were secure and I rebooted both machines to refresh any possible locked up resources. MY printer is not being seen by my windows 7 machine, but typing in the UNC path has allowed me to map it with no issues.

I do appologize if this did not solve your issue, let me know and i'll brainstorm some more.

Hi Aheaton--- No need for an apology, I just appreciate your help, no matter what. I know this has to be very difficult, to say the least. So don't ever apologize to me again, ok. :-) I am closer to solving this problem then I was just a short while ago. I am sure the solution will happen. So keep brainstorming all you want. And I will too.

Thanx...Gunny
