Problem with sharing a printer in VISTA

Posted: 10-24-2008, 12:07 PM
I have a PC and a laptop in a wireless homenetwrok. the PC is directly
connected to the router and to a printer. and the laptop is connected by
wireless connection. I set file and printing on. I can share files easly, but
when I try to share the printer it says "not enugh memory". I tried to set it
as a local port ("\\pcname\printersharename") but it says "access denied".
I'm the admin on both computers.
Both computers are runnig VISTA home premium. The Printer is XEROX
WokStation PE16, and the router is a D-Link router.
PLEASE HELP

Next time please don't multipost. You've already got a thread going with
Jack in the networking newsgroup. Since this is a printer issue, you could
have added a crosspost to this group in your reply to Jack.

Did you install the Vista drivers for this printer on the laptop? Are you
getting the "not enough memory" error on the Desktop or the laptop?

More details, please.

I assume you did not only set file and print sharing on but also did
start-control panel-classic view-printers-run as
administrator-properties-sharing tab and enabled the sharing (this on PC)
noted the pcname and printersharename and on the laptop start-control
panel-classic view-printers-right click on blank area-run as
administrator-add printer then performed the add local printer?

Maybe instead of add local printer try add network printer see if it comes
up when it searches for available printers if so select it and then select
next then it should append it. Using add local printer seems to help when
your using a vista laptop trying to connect to a XP pc's printer.

Re: Problem with sharing a printer in VISTA

That's my main problem... When I try to add the printer as a network printer,
it says "can not connect to printer, not enough memory....". My main pc has a
quad CPU running with 4GB of ram and my laptop is running duo CPU with 2GB of
ram.

How far in the process do you get when you get the "can not connect" is it
after the search when you select the printer?

Can you add the printer if connect the printer directly to the laptop? I'm
thinking something may have gotten corrupted maybe a bad driver can you
re-download the Vista drivers and try again? Or else do you have any
restore points you could go back to?

Re: Problem with sharing a printer in VISTA
Posted: 10-26-2008, 02:09 PM
I get the message after finding the printer and selecting it. And yes, I can
connect to the printer directly, and I downloaded the updated drivers for
vista.
I guess that the main problem would be if i can figure out why i get the
"access denied" message, knowing that i'm runnig as adminstrator on both
computers.
