USB print server for Vista x64 ?

Posted: 01-14-2009, 02:44 AM

Does anyone know of a print server that works properly with Vista x64

I have a couple of USB printers that I would like to share betwee
multiple computers. One of them runs Vista x64, another Vista x86 (3
bit)

The printers run fine when attached directly with USB to eithe
computer

I tried a couple different print server models last year, but none o
them worked with the Vista x64 machine. I don't remember the exac
details now, but it was clearly a print server compatibility proble
with Vista x64. It worked OK on the 32-bit machine

I haven't been able to find any USB print server that even claims t
support Vista x64 so far. Any pointers would be appreciated

Hi
3rd party Printer servers are problematic devices. Even if you find one that
has Vista 64 drivers it might or might not work with your specific printers.
Best is to get a Network ready Printer (or AIO),

HP might a printer server that works with x64 but it would cost more than
buying one or two new Network printers.
