Printer Sharing

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by Earl Partridge, Feb 9, 2010.

  1. Not Vista, but both sides... XP and Windows 7. This is the only "Sharing"
    place found.
    On the 7 machine I have a printer that is shared, but it can not be seen by
    the
    XP machine. On the XP machine I do a Add Printer, the 7 machine name is
    found
    but there are no printers there to select.

    Both machines are in the same workgroup.

    Any thoughts, or suggestion for a more appropriate newsgroup?

  2. In the Windows 7, run "net share" and in the XP run "net view
    \\'windows7IPaddresse'". Post back the result here.
