Printing from XP machines
I have just installed a WS2008 R2 server in school, and i have a Windows XP SP3 machine connected to the new domain.
I have created the two network printers on the server, and used the latest driver for 2008 r2 from HP, but when i go onto the XP machine, and try to add the new printers, it picks them up from the share but when i try to add them i get the following message:
"The server for the HP Universal Printing PCL 6 printer does not have the correct printer driver installed. If you want to search for the proper driver, click OK. Otherwise, click Cancel and contact your network administrator or original manufacturer for the correct printer driver"
I can print ok from the server, but just cant add them onto the XP machine? I have also tried a PCL 5 driver too but get the same message as above, apart from it says PCL 5.
No doubt i am doing something total stupid, or have not enabled something or other, so if anyone knows any thing for me to try please let me know.
This is the first time i have done a 2008 R2 setup so its all new to me. :cool:
