Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Connectivity - Network Printer

I'm trying to add a network printer to my laptop (Win Vista) w/out favorable results. I keep getting told that:

Windows can not connect to the printer. The printer driver is not compatible with a policy enabled on your computer that blocks NT 4.0 drivers.

What kind of assistance can I obtain from YOU?

Thanks,

Chauser

I am installing Kodak ESP-C310 All In One Printer on my home computer. If I want to use this printer for more than one computer (I have 3), do I need to load it on all three? I am using a wireless setup.


For best results, yes. I'll assume you're using a Microsoft operating system. You'll have to "share" the printer from the computer it is connected to by setting the appropriate options in the printer settings. Then, on the other networked computers, you'll have to add a "network printer" and provide the drivers when prompted.

Note: There are other ways to do this as well. For instance, if you router has a usb port, it may be capable of sharing the printer for the network or if all your computers have wifi NICs, that printer supports simply browsing for it wirelessly and will install itself if you're running Windows Vista and up. XP will probably still ask for the driver.

Windows Vista not accessing shared folders on network. It keeps asking to log onto network PC and keeps saying cannot log in when trying accounts on the network pc. Both PC's are on the same workgroup and...


This is a usuall problem when connecting Vista and XP, specially when your vista is a 64-bit and your XP is 32-bit. What you need to do is to manually map the folders on the vista by opening windows explorer and then clicking on Map network drive, you need to put in the exact folder location. Next thing is you need to add user not only activationg the allow access, you need to add the user on the shared folder, you are only using workgroups, unlike domain networks, you just have to give them permission.

No net connectivity


If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible on the network map, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

To set up Network Sharing between XP and Windows Vista, please note that File and Printer Sharing is different in Windows Vista than from the setup in Windows XP.


On a computer running Windows XP, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network Connections.
Click Local Area Network Connection, click Properties, and then view the list of items used by the network connection.
Ensure that the Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder check box is selected.

Can't find printer on network


1.How are you attaching to the network printer from your daughters computer? IP address, or by the name of the printer...Also make sure you check you are attaching to the network printer, and not local printer.

2. Install the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 protocol on both computers by clicking install on your LAN properties, then restart PC. This should work!

Instaling network printer from main computer


On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.
