This is compatability problem. You should install your printer on Windows XP system. Then make it share for all. I think it will print from both 98 and XP. try this.......good luck.

Thanks

Networking, would like to live view security cam in another room


Since the webcam is connected to the win98 PC and the two computers are both connected to one router, then you can manage your win98 PC from your winXP by using a remote manage software. You may install to your win98 PC and winXP PC any remote manager software.

You may try VNC software. http://www.realvnc.com/products/free/4.1/index.html

Sharing with Samba/Cups


To my best knowledge, you cannot. The drivers and scanning software on your unit are not designed to support network protocols. Your unit does not come with an Ethernet adapter and it is not available as an option. When Samsung fits an equipment with a network card (such as the SCX-4521FN) the drivers and software are enabled for network use. By the way, your toner will only last for 3,000 pages. Are you sure it's a good idea to share such such a small unit over a 10 PC network?

1) Ensure you've run the D-Link supplied automatic configuration wizard. 2) Also ensure you have "Netbios over TCP/IP" enabled in your network settings. 3)Ensure you turn off "Bidirectional Printing" in the Ports tab and "Enabled Advanced printing features" in the advanced tab, for testing purposes. I know the printer connectivity is officially supported by D-Link (thru an independent 3rd party test facility) but it seems they may have had NetBeui installed, which is an outdated networking protocol. Try the first 3 options I gave, if they don't work, then let me know. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

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

Sharing srp350 network printer on win98 to winxp


You are correct with the conflict, although, it's a difference in drivers, i think what has happened is when you share a printer with xp, it installs the driver from the pc with the driver and printer attached, and as it is attached to a win98 pc, the full functions are probably unavailable,unlike an xp local driver.
