I have an XP pro machine with a Lexmark 6170 printer attached via USB. It is
shared as \\home\lexmarkx. I am able to print to it from another XP laptop
with no problem.
We've recently purchased a laptop with Vista. I've enabled file and print
sharing and disabled the firewall. I can browse to the printer and connect to
it. But when I try to print the job doesn't ever print. If I view it on the
Vista notebook it lists the job with no status. On the XP PC it never shows
