I have a small home network. A d-link router with an
XP pro box and a 98SE box on hardwires, and a W2K machine
via wireless. A Lexmark 6150 shared from the XP box. An
HP 550c shared from the 98SE box.
1) I can connect to the internet from all 3 boxes.
2) I can see and share files between all three boxes.
3) I can share the HP from the 98SE box to the XP and W2K
4) I can share the Lexmark from the XP box to the W2K box
[but NOT the 98SE box]
5) I can see the Lexmark share in the workgroup and the
network windows on the 98SE box.
6) The current share name is "LexmarkX"
7) I can run the add printer wizard from the share. I
have the correct drivers for the 9x environment from
Lexmark. When it comes time to search and locate the
printer from inside the Lexmark 9x setup utility, it just
won't find it no matter how many different ways I try to
install the darn thing. Same result from the "start /
settings / add printer"
I am baffled. Could it be protocal or service bindings?
I "think" I have those issues configured correctly, but
not 100% sure. Can I share a printer from 98SE and
receive a share from XP at the same time on the 98SE box?
Thanks for all the suggestions,
I believe I've gotten my issues resolved in the
Thanks for your patience while I posted all over the
place, and in screwed up orders.
