    Hey guys. Was wondering if you could help me with this problem. I'
    trying to use a printer through the network, but I have the XP (desktop
    computer connected to the printer.

    I found a good tutorial ('Printer sharing between XP and Vista
    (http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/Printer-sharing-between-XP-Vista-t156394.html)
    that unfortunately, didn't solve the problem. The Vista system stil
    isn't detecting the printer through the network

    I am using the correct drivers (vista 64 bit) and have the printe
    sharing enabled on the xp computer. Any input would be appreciated
    Thanks in advanc

  2. Most Vista printer sharing issues can be fixed by adding it as local printer
    first and the map it as networking printer. This search result may help too.
