XP settings for network printing

Q: XP settings for network printing

Here's my setup: I have an XP Pro that I'm using as a print server through a main Linux-based server. I have been successful at printing from other computers on the network for some time... until recently. Since some kids got to this print server, I needed to lock it up a bit, but while doing that I think I inadvertently changed a setting that has locked up the other computers from the printer. File sharing is still working fine, printer is still shared, but there's no printing from other computers. The print server can open up files and print fine, though (but that's not the solution I'm looking for ).

Any ideas what that magic setting might be? What I need to check? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

One of the Windows components in Windows 7 is the Internet Printing Client. Maybe it was there in Vista or earlier, but if so I never noticed it. I've discovered in the past the Microsoft (and other companies) often use 'Internet' as synonymous with TCP/IP. Is that the case here?

I never print across the Internet-but I do have several printers on my local network that use TCP/IP. And I know it's easy enough to remove this client & see if I can still print to my printers-but it doesn't seem like I should have to figure things out by trial & error.

Do you know whether or not this 'Internet Printing Client' is needed to be able to print to any TCP/IP printer, whether it's actually on the Internet or not? Thanks.

When I try to print a photo, I check the settings to make sure it is in color, but when I select color, it reverts to monochrome when I go to print. This happened before and I cannot remember what I did to fix it. I think it has something to do with photo

Greetings,

One of my clients is legally blind, so he needs an extremely high DPI in order to use his machine. However, When DPI under screen resolution is raised to 255%, the right two inches or so on every page is cut off only in Windows Live Mail.

Steps I've taken:
Printing from different programs - normal.
Printing from IE (which defines WL Mail margins and other settings) - normal.
Different machine with same printer - prints normally.
Different machine, same printer, change DPI to 255% - Windows Live cuts off page.
Different machine, different printer - prints normally.
Different machine, different printer, change DPI to 255% - Windows Live cuts off page.
The main problems I have are: one, I don't want to have him change programs since he's legally blind, and two, we can't decrease his DPI for the same reason.
Is there some underlying cause to this, and something that can be rectified without causing a major change for my client?

Thanks,
Redmage

First of all, THANKS for looking! Here's my quandry:

My wireless router is in the living room. My printer (which is networkable but not wireless) is in the study. How can I print from a laptop that is on the network wirelessly to that printer? (without walking the laptop over to the printer and using the USB cable)

I was thinking of adding another wireless router over by the printer and plugging the network cable into the router and printer. The router would not have any other network connection (wired) and set the router as an access point only.

Would that work? Probably not but figured it was worth a shot!

Thanks again for your help.

What things stop print command to reach printer? Any printer port is blocked? I have uninstalled maximum apps, updated windows 7 64bit OS, updated and downloaded HP drivers. Uninstalled and reinstalled HP drivers. All vain. Can you please help me. I will be grateful to you forever. Thanks alot. Is it O/S issue?

I have scanned a 4 x 6 professionally taken photograph into my PC at 300 dpi. It is a photo of our daughter at her college graduation standing between the US flag and our state flag (Tennessee) with a deep blue background visible from about her neck up between the two flags. She is wearing a black cap and gown with blue trim and collar and her hair is brunette with lots of blond highlights. She has a tan, but not very deep. The image prints very clearly with good tones, vibrant colors, etc. However, the skin tone is way off. Other photos I've scanned have printed perfectly except for this one. I have tried various profiles, settings, etc., but to no avail. I have tried making adjustments within Photoshop Elements 5.0 with respect to the printer, also to no avail. Reviews of this printer indicate that bronze skin tones is a common problem and in this instance I get either very bronze images, slightly yellow images or washed out images.

I am scanning using a Canon CanoScan LIDE 25 scanner and its software.

I am printing on Office Depot Premium Series Professional Photo Paper, just as I have for numerous other photos that have been scanned in, as well as images imported from two different Kodak digital cameras and had no problems with any of those either.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

Hello,
 
This computer had malware like: vosteran, multioplug, seachextensions, goobzo, rockettab, installcore. I was able to remove them using Malwarebytes.
 
The computer seemed to be fine for a few days after that, until the network stopped working. The wireless/network icon has a red "x". I can't open the the "Open Network and Sharing Center" unless I'm in safe mode, and I can't open the network adapter settings (it says that windows explorer has an error and closes the window). I also tried to connect a usb network adapter, and an ethernet ExpressCard, but it wouldn't install them. It won't read usb memories either, unless they were installed previous to this incident.
 
I booted the computer with bitdefender and scaned it. It found a few trojan infected e-mails that were removed. No more viruses have been found after that.

I am in an office building with 40 or so tenants. The entire building is wired to one central network (let's call it main network) controlled by SonicWall where each office has one live network drop. The main network is set up in such a way that tenants can plug in their own switches and routers if they want more network connected devices in their office. The office building has a network printer connected to main network where tenants can print to it. However, when tenants have their own routers in their office you cannot really connect to the network printer that is connected to main network. Is there something I can port, bridge or set-up where they can print to it?
 

A:Printing to network printer on another network

I think that as long as the tenant's router is connected to the main network they should still be able to access that printer provided that the WAN IP address of their routers is within the IP range of the main network where the Network printer is attached.

Hi Everyone!
I have a problem with the office network printer. We use one Printer (Aficio SP C210SF Printer/Scanner/Fax ). This printer is connected to one machine (with MS Windows XP Professional 2002, Service Pack 2) and it's supposed to act as the print server. I have correctly installed the printer on that machine and shared it. The problem is, other PCs cant connect to the printer and cant print. It used to work for a couple of days then it stopped.
I have tried connecting to the machine connected to the printer by trying its IP address in the RUN program, it opens, showing the shared folders and printers. When i try to install the shared printer by clicking its shared folder, it gives the error "Cannot connect to the printer.Either the printer connection to the server has been lost or the printer was renamed". Both options are incorrect coz i checked. I would really appreciate any help from you guys. Thanks in advance!
 

A:Network Printing

Sometimes the simple "fixes" work. On the PC with the printer, unshare the printer, and then share it again.

On the other computers delete the printer (from Printers and Faxes) and then try to connect again to the shared printer.

FWIW, before doing this I would assign the PC with the printer a static IP address. Either use the router's "reserve an IP" feature if it has it, or else just pick an IP in the same subnet but outside the range of those assigned by the Dhcp server.

Hi I am new here so I hope you can help.
I am experiencing problems printing over a network, the setup is as follows -
I have a central server running Windows Server 2003, there are about 16 PCs connected to it all running Windows XP Pro, there are 4 rooms with 4 PCs in each room and 1 printer connected via USB to one PC in each room. The printers are of various makes, HP, Epson etc and are all inkjets

When users try to print they sometimes have to log off and back on in order to get the printers to work. This happens more often on some PCs than on others. On several PCs they have to reboot every time they want to print, as you can imagine this very annoying!!!

I have tried installing the printers to a 'local port' on each machine, using the \\PC\printername route, this seems to work for a short time then reverts back to not working. I have also tried installing the drivers onto each individual machine but this has no effect.

Can anyone help as I am pulling my hair out!!

A:Network Printing

The Printer you are trying to access, is that shared over the Peer to Peer network??

You cannot create that printer as a local printer if it is not directly to your computer.

I have never come across that error before so I'm quite sure what to suggest. For you to connect to the Printer, it must be shared. Right click on the Printer in Settings / Printers and there should be a sharing option.

you should be able to share the printer through your XP desktop altho your desktop would have to be on to be able to print.

To share your printer

Open Printers and Faxes. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.

Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Sharing.

On the Sharing tab, click Share this printer and then type a share name for the shared printer.

If you share the printer with others using different hardware or different operating systems, click Additional Drivers. Click the Environment and operating system for the other computers, and then click OK to install the additional drivers.

I can open files from my shared folders on my XP desktop from my Windows 7 Laptop, etc. I can see all of the printers when I "Add a Printer" - but it tells me that:

"Windows can't find a driver for Canon iP4300 on the network."

I cannot find a driver manually and have installed a Windows 7 compatible driver for the iP4300 on my Laptop, etc. - no luck.

When I connect the same XP Printer directly to my Laptop by USB cable - it prints find. But, I can't seem to find a solution to my wireless problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

what networking protocol are you using? homegroup? homegroup is for exclusively win 7 networks. If used in meixed networks it can give connectivity problems, slow DLs, and random disconnects. If you are its pretty easy to find out. create a new netwrok using the work group model. If it doesnt solve it you may alse have to install the priter drivers locally on all the pcs before it will work. I sus[pect homegroup

I have an HP 551n printer. There are several computers sharing this same printer. Is there a way to track where the print job sent to the printer originated? All of the computers connected to this printer are HP desktops and laptops running Windows XP. I really wasn't sure under what category this question belonged. Thanks for any help.

This may shed some light on the subject for you.....but from what I've read the short answer is no.

Hi, I have a main PC hard wired to a modem / router with USB printer connected, a desktop and three laptops all wireless - all are Win 7 64bit and one of them has stopped remote printing (says printer is offline). As I have always found network printing a bit of a hit or a miss, i.e. sometimes works sometimes doesn't I thought I'd investigate further. I changed the router recently but just can't see that as being the problem and the only thing that seems to be different on the one that doesn't print is I can't get it to join the homegroup (which I didn't think you needed to be to network print) because it says I need to have IPv6 enabled but can't seem to figure out how to get that enabled - the box is ticked in adapter properties. Is there a reliable way to ensure you can always connect to the printer over the network each time every computer is switched on ? Network printing is great - when it works !!!

As always, any help would be very much appreciated.

For me on my home network and network printing, all PC's must be in the same work group (what ever it's named) and all PC's must have the driver loaded. Try uninstalling printer driver from PC that's having the issue and then re install through the network under devices/printers and letting it search for it and install it. Personally, I've never had an issue with printing from my home network once the above procedure was completed and I've moved (new house) and changed routers and moved printer from one PC to another.

ok heres the deal-
we have some people that have to dial into our network, they also have to dial into another companies network as well. The problem is here...we have to use a TCP/IP "switcher" to switch the settings between theirs and ours...this involves a reboot, thus making people annoyed...but there really is no way around this since they want to use WIn98....here is my question...since we hooked them up to a network printer on OUR network, they have to reboot with our settings when ever they want to print, is there a way to enable them to print to our network printer when they are on the other network??
 

A:network printing

The only solution I see is to get them an operating system that lets them change without reboot (like XP) or install another network card to have it connected to both networks...

[just re-read the post and realized it's dial-up... obviously, my second solution isn't a solution at all here =]

I have a Verizon DSL account hooked up through a Westell Modell 327w.

One computer is hardwired into it and has a printer attached to the PC.

One computer is wireless to the Westell unit and has a printer attached the PC.

On occasion I use my work laptop on the Westell using the wireless.

Can I get my laptop to print to either of the physical printer on the PC's?

Thanks
Rick
 

A:Network Printing..Is this possible?

Yes, you can. Go to Help and Support Center and search for "printer sharing." If you run into any speed bumps, come back for help; knowing your operating system(s) would help us help you. Here is a copy of one article found on my XP machine:

To share your printer
Open Printers and Faxes.
Right-click the printer you want to share, and then click Sharing.
The options you see on the Sharing tab differ depending on whether sharing is enabled on your computer. For instructions on what to do next, click the option that describes what you see on the Sharing tab.
I see text stating that printer sharing must be turned on

You need to enable printer sharing by running the Network Setup Wizard. Start it by clicking the link on the Sharing tab, and then follow the instructions. Once sharing is enabled, begin this procedure again.
I see options for sharing or not sharing the printer

On the Sharing tab, click Share this printer, and then, in the Share name box, type a name for the shared printer.
If you share the printer with users on different hardware or different operating systems, click Additional Drivers. Click the environment and operating system for the other computers, and then click OK to install the additional drivers.
Drivers for users running other versions of Windows (Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0) are located on the Support CD. Printer drivers for Windows NT 3.1 and Windows NT 3.5 are not included.

Click OK, or, if you have installed additional... Read more

I am currently having problems printing to my netowrk printer. I am printing from a Dell laptop (XP home) over a 10 base T ethernet network to an Epson Stylus 950 printer connected using an Intel print server. No matter what size the print job i send, the laptop takes a few minutes to process the job and i wnat to findout how i can speed things up. I've looked at the task manager and found that while processing the print jobs the paging feel seems to be used a lot.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong??
 

A:Network Printing

Look in the properties for the print server and see if there is an option to spool the jobs there instead of locally. More memory on the printer will also help if it has that option to add memory

I'm running w2000 and I can no longer print from DOS applications. I was able to before I changed printers. I had a NEC before and 1 month ago I got an HP 3330mfp. It worked for 1 month then stopped yesterday. How do I uncapture the NEC and recapture the HP on LPT1? Would that even help? I am the print server for the office. I can print from DOS but everyone connected to the network cannot. They keep getting message saying the printer is offline when they try to print from DOS applications. Can you help? Thank You very much. Jeremy

Hi - Not sure whether this should go here,

Got a Networked Coperier/Printer which has worked fine for time

All of a sudden any print which goes to it - we must restart the printer spooler service for the job to go through

Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

Thanks
 

A:Network Printing

Is this the spooler service on the client machines or on a print server? Are you printing directly to this printer or using some server somewhere as a passthrough? Have you ckeced for klnow problems with the manufacturer of this device to see if there are any patches or drive updates? Does this ONLY happen printing to this printer and not to anything attached locally (If there is anything attached locally?)
