Try manually adding your printer. Sounds like your loading the win95 drivers on the nT machine

You may also not have any permissions on the NT machine to add a printer in which case you would add it under the admin account and share to everyonefrom there.

Not knowing how you're setting up your printer it may not be a bad idea o get ho je admin to set all this up for you

Good luck to you

Make sure you have the drivers installed on both machines...on the Win95, make sure it's Win95 drivers and on the NT4 make sure it's the NT4 drivers. other than that, i dunno.

Hiyas.. well I had a similar problem at my home network, what I did was I manually installed the printer driver for win95 and
made sure it was a shared print device. Next,
goto microsoft neighborhood, look for the
shared device,double click on it, and install
the device driver for winNT.Hope this helps you. Good Luck! =)

Answer number two says exactly what you need to do , ie install win95 driver on win95 and the WinNT driver on WinNT Manually .

Just want to add that when the printer is attached to WinNT and set up as a Print server then all Win95 machines can automatically download the driver from NT , you need to install it only once on NT .

Good Luck !!!
