Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Share the printer first on the main pc (desktop)
get the sharename and full computer name of the main pc, its case sensitive.......
then, install the vista driver on the laptop. (note: you need vista drivers installed locally on the laptop because the main pc has a different operating system)
after installing the driver, go to the printers folder, right click the printer icon, go to properties, go to the ports tab, hit add port.
a new window will open giving you the option of local port.
select local port then click new port! on the space type in the information you got earlier... \\fullcomputername\sharename then click add
this will add a port on the selections, make sure the one thats checked is the port that you just added. click apply or ok to close those windows.
