    Situation:
    XP print server for Lexmark X1150. Print ok from any XP pc in the network.

    Vista PC ; downloaded new driver from lexmark. X1150 connected to Vista (via
    USB): print ok

    Printer connected to XP server: print from Vista does not work. Result
    message in Vista PC says print is ok and printed on network printer. Real
    result is: no print at all and also not in printqueue on XP server.

    Workgroup name: for all machines in network the same.
    Network printer is visible in Vista PC printers.

    Filesharing from Vista o XP is OK.

    What can be wrong and how can we solve the problem?

    Any help will be great.

  3. Try installing Vista drivers on the XP machine. Or these posts may help,
