Can't print from shared printer

Using a client laptop, I can't print to the Epson RX595 installed on the host pc, which works just fine. Drivers installed on both machines, sharing selected on both machines, client pc will see and open the monitoring window showing status... then a communication error window will pop up. have reinstalled the drivers three times, and used every port available on the laptop. physical printer will not print, nor will the status window light up.

Did you connect the printer directly to the laptop to install the drivers? If so, you need to change the port to the network location to //hostcomputer/printer. You should also have the same user name and password set on both machines and have the user rights assigned to the printer sharing.

Is there an update product for converting my R220 printer to work wireless with a laptop


To make it work wireless you will need a wireless print server, however if you just want to use the printer over a network you can try sharing the printer over the network this is operating system dependant.
If you are on XP you can go to control panel, printers and faxes. Right click on the printer you should have an option for sharing or printer sharing. Once setup on the host PC you will need to add the printer via the add printer wizard. This is similar with most versions of Windows, please also note when using different versions of Windows the latest version is usually best set to host.

Our HP desktop and Dell laptop are both connected to a AT&T 2 wire router/modem. The desktop is connected to an Epson non-wireless printer. How can we print wireless from the laptop? The laptop is...


You have to install the relevant drivers FIRST (Just install without printer thats fine) on the host & clients and then make sure you "Share" the printer on the Host setup. (The one where the printer is attached). Then on the clients you install a "Networked" printer and "Find" it on the network. Now ALL the PC's need to be in same"Workgroup" and have "Sharing" enabled on each machine, they all must have a name & password too..

I'm using an iMac G5 with an Epson an Epson RX595 printer. Everything worked well for a long time. Now ... the printer just shoots paper through constantly without printing. I've re-installed the newest...


hi,,
the nozzles of the printer might be clogged by dried inks thats why when your printing, its feeding the paper, as if its printing but no inks on the paper. print a nozzle check to see which part or color have clogs, if there are gaps or breaks, do head cleaning untill no more gaps then try printing.

click this link to see how to print a nozzle check and run a head cleaning, click the search box and type nozzle check, select "check the print head nozzles"
type head and select "clean the print head nozzles"

New Epson RX595 won't print


Apparently the latest software doesn't work with Leopard 10.5.2. I uninstalled the Epson software and installed the earlier version [driver version 3.88] that come on the Installer CD with the printer. Printing now works.
