PC1 wantes to use shared printer connected to PC2. Does PC1 use the printer driver
installed on PC2 or was a driver copy placed on PC1 when printer
sharing was set up?
The reason I ask is I have a Vista and XP wired network. The XP has some
legacy hardware on it whose drivers
are not Vista compatible. I can use the
printer connected to the XP from the Vista PC, but not the scanner. The
scanner shows up on my shared devices on the Vista PC, but calls from
programs will no share it. I'm assuming it's a driver access problem, but I
don't know if the Vista PC is trying to access the scaner driver on the XP PC
or if the problem is that it couldn't add it to its own list of drivers?
