Not supports bi-directional printing on win98 + winxp network
I have a small network at office consisting 10 computers among them 2 are using winxp yet eight use win98. upon new installation (if the printer is installed on win98) prints sent from win98 terminals are printed fine. but as soon as a print is sent from WinXp no other printing can be done from win98. currently i am using winxp to print my documents. if there is any solution pleast help me.

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer. To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer on a wireless network . You need to do the following - 1. Open the printer\'s menu and enable the Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP\'s are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer\'s network configuration accordingly. 2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port. 3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router. 4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties. 5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port. 6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port. 7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP\'s printer IP address. 8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK 9. Remove the printer cable, then do a test print to see if the printer prints correctly. Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer\'s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer. You can now print from any computer on your network.

Bidirectional Printing - A means of printing by a computer printer which prints one line from left to right, then the following line from right to left. Such printing is faster than printing in one direction only, as there is no need to wait for the carriage or other imaging mechanism to return to the left margin before starting a line. how to enable bi-directional printing.here's how:
-click on start
-click on printers and faxes (control panel->printers and faxes)
-right-click on Dell Photo All in One Printer 964 All-In-One icon
- click on properties
-click on ports tab
-down at the bottom there's a small box before bi-directional support
-tick the box to enable it then click apply,ok
-try printing again
note: in vista , printers and faxes is printers.in win 7 ,it's devices and printers. and properties in win 7 is printer properties
have one too, this happened with an x73 when i upgraded from win98 to winXP, It happened with the X6150 when i upgraded to vista. to correct this problem, Get an HP printer and be done with it. I like lexmark because the ink costs less, but if they do not work, they are of no help, Lexmark needs to invest in engineers to write drivers, they will not do so unless we stop buying their good printes controlled by flawed software. Unfortunately, after having installed the latest driver, from their site, on a computer that had never had a printer installed before and was out of the box with all the windows update, it is a LEXMARK problem. Everything else works fine. LEXMARKS problems continue to be an issue. This is my last LEXMARK.
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?
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.
