Shared printer probs

pericles, Aug 10, 12:52am
my IT man came in to do some work on the computers.
He uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, on one computer.
Now the other computer can't access the printer.
Help please

enable sharing on the printer

well find someone else and bill the guy who broke it in the first place.

done that, ticked the share box

Delete the printer, and then add it again, using the sharename used on the first computer (you might have to check what the share name is, or even share the printer first)

You then need to remap the printer on the other computer most likely. . delete the printer on the computer that cant use it and then re select the shared printer.
