I loaded Print Master Gold 15 on a networked workstation and moved all PM project files to a shared drive on the server. When I try to open an existing file I get an error message that the file is opened by another user.

Shut down all the computers connected to that network and then switch on the computer you are working at. You will now be able to open your desired file.

Preventing Network users from saving the files locally


> there are shared folders for Files.

Don't put any files into those folders that you don't want people to be able to use their "read-access" permissions to access the file.

If the user has "read-access", it can be copied to any removable media (CD-R, flash-drive, etc.) or attached to an E-mail.

Hello I would like to buy a compatible print server for my hp officejet 4255 all in one, because I want to share it among several pc-desktops connected to a router in wi-fi. Netgear says they do not...


What you want is the HP 2101NW
Unfortunately, this product has been discontinued by HP themselves, but you may be able to find a store that has old stock, or find one on EBAY.
The easier solution is to share it across the network from a workstation that is always on, or make a print server workstation out of an old PC or laptop that will do nothing but share the printer across the network.
You can buy an older PC to use for this function cheaper in many cases than buying a standalone print server. I did this myself for ages using a laptop I picked up for $50. The laptop wasn't good for much more than a print server, but as a print server it worked flawlessly. The laptop would wirelessly connect to the network and was USB wired to the printer, which it shared across the network.
NOTE: you will be limited to PRINT ONLY under these situations.
If I recall correctly, the only way to have full functionality is with the 2101NW which as I said is now discontinued, but was an amazing product in it's day!

I have a retail store with 7 x Win 7 Workstations. i have 1 x Epson Tm-T88iii thermal receipt printer connected and installed on lpt1 port on my 1 workstation. We use a Dos application for our sales. The...


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.

DNS errors then? can you map to the printer via hostname too? Are you sure you're not using SP3? When we upgraded to SP3, we had to use the new drivers. Try new drivers.Have you tried just rebuilding your print server? try sharing the printer off your computer in the data center and try t print to that. When you ping the data center from the user's computer... what is the delay?

We have a LINUX Suse server. We have this nhatquanglan virus on our XP machines. I can do a system restore on the XP's and all functions (task manager, device manager, etc) that were disabled by the virus...


System restore on XP is restoring individual PC stations but because you have probably shared folders on linux server you have same problem on server. Solution:
  • Remove network cable from linux server
  • Install some antivirus solution for linux server (in case you don't have one) and scan and clean server from viruses.
  • Also after you remove network cables from workstations scan and remove viruses from XP stations
  • When you finish those steps atach network cables and probably you will not have that problem
Reason for that is becausesome viruses and trojans are spreading through shared folders

Dell a920 network problem


I will assume you have the Printer connected directly to a PC via the USB printer cable on our network.

a. Start - Run - Control - Ok
b. Open 'Printers and Faxes"
c. Open "Dell A920"
d. Print "Test Page" to assure the printer is working and connected.
e. With the "Dell A920" properties open - find the tab for Sharing.
f. Now select Share the Printer and name it.

At each Workstation you will need do steps a-b, and add the printer. Select browse network when adding the printer and find the Workstation with the shared printer.

If your Firewall on each Workstation is blocking "Print and File Share" you will need to change the settings to allow this procedure through.

Here is a link that may help further.

Labels not printing properly


El problema es que la impresora tiene diferentes parametros de impresion, de oscuridad o velocidad. Ajustalos para que sean iguales en el print server como en workstation. The problem is that the printer has different printing parameters, or speed or darkness. Adjust to be equal in the print server as workstation.

Losing connectivity on my OKI MICROLINE 3320 printer


Hi chris_tzo;

Without knowing your configuration on your servers, it sounds like a sharing issue on the printer. If one of the servers is set to be a print server, then you need to duplicate that on the other. If you don't have a print server, then you are sharing the printer from a workstation. In that case, what I would suggest, from the computer that you are having problems with. Drill down into the network to the computer/server that is sharing the printer and when you get to the printer, right click the printer and click connect. This will load a direct connection to your computer, and you shouldn't have any disconnect issues again. If you do, I'd say it's a network IP problem that is causing the disconnect, which is a whole other can of worms.

Good Luck

Mark
