    Shared Printer Problem

    I have set up my Canon printer to be shared with my second, routed,
    computer.

    However, I'm not able to print from my second computer. I receive an
    "Error - Sent to Printer" message in my printer queue.

    Is it possible that the problem is that I have the wrong ports selected in
    both computers.

    If that's the problem, how do I find the name or number of the port in my
    host computer?

    Re: Shared Printer Problem

    The problem could be with printer software. I suggest you delete the shared printer from the remote computer, install the printer directly connected with the remote computer, then add the printer through the network. After that if you like you may delete the direct installation.
