can not find printer using NetBEUI

By btrainer ·
I have enable NetBEUI and TCP/IP on our Win2000 computers. We used to shared printers via 'Add printer' then choosing search network, and by clicking on the icon of the computer connected to the printer, we could then perminently connect to that printer. Now, this is not working, and I have no idea why. Any ideas???? We are all using same protocols, in fact this has not changed since we started. The printer does have a hand under it, so it is shared. Stumped!

Our printer requires the IPX network protocol.

Have you checked to make sure that the Workgroup or Domain is matching on all PCs?
(System Properties in the Control Panel/Network ID)

Also, try Right-Click on "My Network Places" and select "Search for Computers". Do a search for one of the other computer names that are networked and see if they show that way.

Hope that helps..!

a lot of possibles to cover.
heres one,
If you are using a DOS based app you must have LPT1 captured to the network path.

heres another,
possible that the pc that serves the printer does not have file and print sharing enabled within Network Neighborhood properties.

I am threaded to this and will offer more if needed. More specific info would help with the diagnosis.
Good luck
