Printing in Windows 98

By doc7213 ·
I have a Windows 98 machine on a network with a Unix box and there are 4 network printers on this network. This is a brand new Dell Dimension PIII 600 MHz, 128 Ram, 20 Gig HD, 56 Modem. Anyway, I can not print from any Windows, or Dos programs to any of the network printers. I have reinstalled all printers and drivers. The printers all work fine from any of the other workstations.
I have redone the network settings, just in case, and nothing seems to work. I would appreciatte any possiblesuggestions.

Are you printing thru a Unix print server or to a TCP/IP port? Enable file and printer sharing on the 98 machine and see if this changes anything (if not already enabled). When you add the network printer make sure you do NOT select "LOCAL PRINTER". Good luck!

Well, it sounds like you already have a good idea about what you are doing, the only thing All I know to tell you is to make sure the workgroups are the same and that you are using the same in/out addresses because sometimes even though the system shows no problem with the network card, it will not work unless it is routed the same, using the same login, in/out addresses, pretty much the same everything. Good luck.
