A different network printer problem

    Three machines on wireless LAN. Three different OS: 98SE,
    XP, Vista.

    Printer is local to 98SE. I've had the XP on the printer (although I
    don't at the moment), and I can see the 98 machine from the Vista
    machine; however, Vista says the printer wasn't for sharing, but I
    checked the printer on 98 and it is set for sharing.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Mike.

    IIRC, Workgroups are different. I will check
    and see.

    With regard to most of your other suggestions, even though I've been
    working with computers for over 50 years (Bendix G-15, 1957), I have no
    idea what 'NTLM V2 Authentication' means. Also, not sure what 9x
    represents, but perhaps 98 fits the 'code'. Ditto for NAS.

    I've done a fair amount of Win Registry editing (without knowing much
    about why what I waas doing, worked); however I don't anything abot the
    hack you are talking about.

    Do you have any favorite links where I can do some self-learning?

    Thanks again.
