    Sharing a printer on a remote client

    This one is baffling me! I have a colour photocopier connected via USB to an XP client. It has both the xp drivers and the server 2003 drivers (64bit) installed. The xp client is connected via wireless. I want to share this through the server (overcoming the 10 client limit). Now the server see and connects to the copier without a problem. But when I come to add a new printer on the server (to share with the other clients) the printer will install but it will not print.

    I have got this system working well in many other schools but never on a 64 bit server. I can only guess that that is at the heart of the problem. I have tried just about every possible combination of drivers, postscript, PCL 5c, PCL 6 etc with no joy at all. The server will print without a hitch to the copier but my "normal" way of sharing it just won't work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Ian

    Connect the server to the remote printer. Then add a local printer to the server but configure the port to the remote one. Then share this new printer on the network. Hey presto! Just not in this instance
