Epson Stylus Color printer over two PC

By technerd ·
Two pC's one running Win98SE, the other Win2000 pro edition.
I have a Epson Stylus Color 300 attached to the 98 machine and shared by the 2000 machine. I had to substitute a ESC/P2 driver on the Win2000 PC because there is no Stylus Color 300 driver for the new OS yet. Anyway the 2000 machine will not print in color. It was hard enoug getting the 2000 PC to even load the printer without asking for a driver that didn't exist, bot now this; no color. Any suggestions?

This might be what you have allready done, but it is a bit unclear. If your two machines are connected in a network, install the printer on the 98 machine. On the 2000 machine, install a new printer. When it asks you for local or network printer, selsect network printer. Route it to the 98 machine.
By the way, you must have enabled the file/printer sharing, and shared the printer on the 98 machine. (right-click on in in the control panel)

In the meantime, use the Windows 98 driver. That has been know to work. Win98 and W2K interact with hardware in very similar ways.

The problem is, of course, due to the fact that you're using the wrong driver. Try www.drivers.com maybe?
