Cannot print on networked printer

My computer shares a printer with one other computer and was printing okay until I installed Spyware Doctor with Antivirus program purchased from PC Tools. Now when I try to print, I get a message that my computer is unable to connect with the printer because the print spool isn't running. The print spool is turned on on both computers

Cannot connect to networked computer: Error - "not enough storage space to process this command"


Okay, first a bit of "techie" information. When you print you send a file to the "print spooler" on the system handling the printing. In your case, that is Workstation 2. That file can be quite large and if there are several sent at once it can take up a lot of room. Once the system finishes printing it then clears out that space on the hard drive. Second, because you also use that for a file storage it may be that a lot of files are stored on that system either permanently or temporarily. So....the answer is that you are probably temporarily running out of disk space.

The reason you IRPStackSize increase worked is that you set aside more space for that stack so the system could hand incoming data more easily ...which meant it could sometimes delay a disk write enough to avoid a printing error.

The solution is to either increase the hard drive capacity of the system or to move the printing or customer files to another system on the network.

Of course, I could be wrong about this....;>) but it's the first thing that occurred to me.

You installed a new version of your favorite program and ended up getting infected. Most spyware is installed without users being aware. Anti-spyware software programs can be used solely for detection and removal of spyware software that has already been installed onto your computer. With this protection software you can schedule weekly, daily, or monthly scans of your computer to detect and remove any spyware software that has been installed. Updates may be installed automatically on a schedule or before doing a scan, or may be done manually.

Cant configre printer sharing via web on win server 2003


Yes is possible. Use Routing and Remote Access facility from Windows 2003 server to create a VPN Server. Create a VPN connection to Windows server, and thus you get an IP address from windows 2003 server and you can use printer.

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.
