If you wish to print via a print server, please be aware the printer should be installed as local printer on this PC and shared. After this you can install the printer on the remote pc using the option add printer > network printer and point to the other pc using UNC as \\ip adress of the pc where printers is installed locally\name of the printer.
Supported HP Printer: HP Color LaserJet 2600n printer
(Host-Based) Recommended PCL5 Device Type: SAPWIN
- requires Server-based printing via SAPSprint or Frontend Printing via SAPgui Supported SAP Release: See SAP Note # 8928
try adding printer and browsing network for printer, it should see the host and printer and add using correct network path, if you don't see host computer "print server" then you aren't on correct network path
What driver are you using on your vista machine? It would be better to load a local printer on your laptop and create a standard TCP/IP port using the address everyone else is using and load the driver locally instead of network printer. Also if you are using a print server to make it networkable you probably need the GDI version of the print driver loaded not the PCL5 or 6. It can be downloaded from sharpusa.com. PCL driver only works if PCL Print option is installed on the device. This would also give you a nic port on the copier as well, so if you have print server you probably don't have that option. If you need more specific details let me know.
I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
After long research .... I found out that the pixma is indeed a network printer ;) .... BUT it has a printserver already build in!!!! Having 2 Servers is obviously not too good of an idea ;) ....still wonders me as to why it did work in the 1st place ..... (i guess there was something wrong with the w2k3 print server *muhaahha)
i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different
workstations with the following steps.
1. install printer locally via usb and test. 2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it. 3.
once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the
port to something local - anything will do to free up the port. 4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server. 5. test print. should work fine.
