Check the port configurations on both XP machines. It should have the IP address of the print server connected to the plotter.

Hi, I have a Fuji Xerox 3200MFP. I can fax with no problem, scan with no problem. But I can not print or copy - anything that requires printing. The Status Window gives me "Printing... Please...

Most likely it's the driver. Try going to the Fuji website and see what drivers are available. It's possible that the driver your using isn't designed to work with your operating system (such as designed for Windows XP and your now using Windows 10, etc.)

My printer canon ir2022n network printer does not print from my new vista business OS computer

Windows sharing based printers are dependent on the computer where the printer is attached. This means that if the computer is turned off, or is in the sleep/hibernate mode, then all the computers that can print through that server will not be able to print. To solve this issue you can use external print servers to share printers in the home/office. External print servers are connected to the router which allows it to be available on the network without being dependent on any other computer system. External print servers are available in both wireless and wired versions, and the choice between those options is based on the needs of the home or office.get more information and help for Network Printer Configuration .Hope this helps you.

My wGPS606 wont print on my Windows Vista laptop!

I just found a way to enable the HP P1006 with a different print server (Liveprint on Orange Livebox router). Perhaps this might work with the WGPS606 wireless print server?

I set up the P1006 via the print server as instructed (I'm using Vista 32 Home Premium) but no test page would print.

BUT!! (with thanks to another another forum):

I selected printers, then right-clicked on the wireless printer I'd just installed and selected 'properties'.

Under the 'Ports' tab I deselected 'Enable bidirectional support'.

Problem solved.

Hope this helps.

let me inform you that this printer is not compatible with any wireless print server. The drawback is that it is not possible to network such printers. A printer needs a steady flow of data, which is easily accomplished when it is connected directly to a PC, but cannot be guaranteed when the printer is connected via a LAN. Also, these technologies require intensive handshaking between the driver and the printer.
The host-based software uses the computer's resources to process print commands and rasterizing data, taking advantage of the computer's memory and processing power."

Sorry I can't be more upbeat - but its probably useful to know that someone at HP thinks the job's imposible - unless someone out there has a fix?

I want to connect the print server ESI9132079.i need drivers for this print server.


Download and read the manual of this print server.

You only need the actual printer drivers not the print server driver (there is no such thing for print server drivers). Once you connect to network and to Print server, you should be able to see what brand printer is connected to server such as HP, Epson, Fujixerox, Samsung, etc.

Hope this helps

Ubuntu 8.04 x64 not connecting

Ubuntu has his own print server. When you click on System/Administration/Print (not sure, because I use the French version :Impression), it opens a window. Then you select Go to the server (again, something similar to that choice), and you can configure the options for the server.
