Thank you Tom,
I had the computers set up for LPR printing, but there were a couple of
things I hadn't realized, (ID 10 T).
The problem now is that when you send something to print, it doesn't.
When I open the print jobs window, it shows the status as, "Printing -
spooling", but nothing prints.
I let this go for over an hour, a couple of times. When I "Cancel All
Documents", the printer then starts running through paper, nothing printed on
it, untill the paper tray is empty. I have to cancel the job on the printer
to make it stop and the printer never does reset itself.
I checked the Printer Spooler service under "Administrative Tools", to make
sure the startup type is set to automatic and the service status is started.
I believe everything regarding the print server is set correctly, but I
can't figure out why I can't get things to print.
Thanks again for the help, first person that has even tried. Vista doesn't
seem that bad after all.
