The network resource type is not correct

The network resource type is not correct?

I have tried a number of ideas including reinstalling the printer driver, lpt driver. I have updated with the win98 service pack and all y2k patches. The target printer is on another workstation shared.I can refresh the printer, logout and login again and the user can print fine for a while. It is variable on software and time until the problem happens. Any ideas would be appreciated. Please send ideas to msaleh@energyint.com(more direct approach)

All help is appreciated.

How much RAM is on that system? Is the problem reproducible? What kind of printer is is it? What kind of NIC?

Maybe something is acting wacky when resources get to a low level. You might try troubleshooting that idea, using less multitasking andmaybe Memturbo to keep you resources at a healthy level. Though there could very well be a quirk in the printer drive or NIC. I've seen the HP5000 (I think) act really funny over a LAN when it first came out because of a buggy print driver.
Good luck!

This is the obvious, but, is the User with the shared printer leaving their PC on? That is required. Another thing to try is changing the print driver to an older one. I have used the 4si driver for a 5si printer and it worked. Give it a shot and see what happens. All protocols the same? Can you see the shared printer through Network Neighborhood when problem occurs? Can you see the User's PC name when the problem occurs? Make sure powersave feature is turned off on the sharing PC. I have seen NICs drop the network connection when going into powersave mode.
