Toshiba e-Studio 160 network mapping from a Win XP LPT1 port to Windows Vista x64
I have a Windows XP Box with my e-Studio 160 attached to it via LTP1. This has been shared, and works well with all the other office computers which are running XP. Till now... Now we have purchased a new Vista x64 box for a user, and cannot connect to the printer as we normally would. It says that the driver is unavailable and asks for a .inf file to complete the install.
I have downloaded the Vista Driver pack and this is unfortunatly just executable installers, and doesn't help. The driver pack was also installed onto the XP box and works beautifully, but offers no new Vista support.
How do I get this right? How do I ADD ADDITIONAL DRIVRS under the printer properties on the XP box?

Hi, details below for creating a ersistent connection from LPT1: to you \\computer\\printername printer. Do the following on the other workstation that is not printing.
Use the net.exe command to establish a persistent connection.
To do this, use the following syntax at a command prompt:
net use lpt1 \\printserver\sharename /persistent:yes
where printserver is the print server that is sharing the printer, and where sharename is the name of the printer share.
For example, to map LPT1 to a printer shared as Laser1 on a print server that is named Pserver, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click Run. 2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK. 3. Type net use lpt1 \\pserver\laser1 /persistent:yes, and then press ENTER. 4. To quit the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.
Note In Windows XP, non-administrative users cannot map an LPT port to a network printer path when the LPT port exists on the computer as a physical parallel port.
If you are using a NT based Windows (ex. win nt, win 2000, win xp, etc...) you could try sharing the printer than MAP it as a network printer and direct it to a virtual LPT port with a DOS command ex: net use lpt2: \\ComputerName\SharedPrinterName /yes
Than setup the DOS software to print on LPT2 it should worke, i've done this many many times
Note: if you absolutely have to use LPT1 dont forget to change the physical LPT 1 port in Windows hardware manager to something els so it do not conflict with the virtual one
Lexmark never updated the E210 driver for Windows Vista / Windows 7. Luckily, the printer is identical to the Samsung ML-1210 printer, which has better drivers that are Vista / Win 7 compatible. (The new drivers also work if the printer is connected to an XP machine, but is being shared with a Vista machine on your network.)
Go to the Samsung Support website (www.samsung.com/us/support/) and then type ML-1210 in the search box in the middle of the page. Click on the ML-1210 result, then click the "Downloads" tab, then below that, click "Drivers." Scroll down to get the correct driver for your system.
Uninstall any old drivers before installing the new drivers.
