    I am trying to add a network printer to a vista machine. The printer is on
    a win64 server 2008 machine. I can sucessfully add the same printer to a
    32bit XP machine so I don't think its a problem with the server. In vista I
    turned of the windows firewall from the control panel then disabled the
    entire service and restarted. When I try to add the printer from the
    control panel using "Run as Administrator" Add Printer I get a generic
    error, "Windows cannot connect to printer" with no useful information and
    only the below entry in the event viewer. Anyone have any ideas on what the
    problem could be?

    The Windows Filtering Platform has blocked a bind to a local port.

    I guess I will wait for windows 7 and hope upgrading allows me to add a
    network printer.

    When connected to my work's wifi it will connect to an HP IP printer with a
    built in network card but I have not been able to connect to a printer that
    is shared on a remote machine.

  4. Is the laptop joined to the same domain as the machine sharing the printer?

    No. There is no domain.

  6. is there a user account on the desktop with same name and password as the
    laptop?

    Did you add a different printer to the desktop that uses a driver in the OS
    to confirm this is not related to the print driver?

    is there a user account on the desktop with same name and password as the
    Yes, there are two printers on the machine one required a driver download
    the other's were included with the OS (HP Deskjet 5550) and both give the
    same error when trying to add them.

    I have a mac mini that came with XP and it was able to add both printers. I
    upgraded it to windows 7 and it still was able to add the printers with no
    problem. It is only this vista 32 machine that is giving me problems.
