Cannot print to a shared USB printer of a XP machine on the networ

  1. XP to XP is fine.
    Vista to XP does not work.

    Who tested this software? It even makes no sense, the printer wizard makes
    you do local printer in order to even connect to a shared printer, and then
    it doesn't work.

    Your security features for this is way too hard to allow legitimate printing
    on shared printers, and requires me to have a windows Vista password on MY
    account to even use printers on ANOTHER PC? How does this make
    sense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Remake Vista plz k thx bie

  2. If the print is going thru the Ethernet device, and the wire connection is
    long, try using the device Properties of the Ethernet device to set the
    Speed to 100 HALF-duplex.

    For what it's worth: I have an XP and Vista connected through a belkin
    router. What I do is find the Printer Icon on the XP PC, drag it onto the
    Vista PC. I am then asked to install the driver and it works ok.
