LPR Printing - not in Network N'hood

By Mick@work ·
I've set up a print queue for a HP laser 8550 colour printer on an NT4 SP6a.

The printer only appears in Network N'hood for NT & Win 2000 machines - not Win98.

In NT/2000 i can add the printer via Network N'hood or the printer wizard.

For Win98 i have to manually type in the path of the printer - it can't see it on the server otherwise.

Both NT & Win95 drivers are on the server. This has happened before but i was unable to find why.

I contact HP who said its a 'microsoft thing',i.e. not their fault!

Any contributions gratefully accepted.

PS the server has over 20 other queues on it which everyone can see.

Thanks

michael

can you browse the network with the W98 client?
If not check if the Workgroupname is similar to the Domainname
