Prob with network printer recognition

By kgalbreth ·
I have a location with a small network.
The server OS is Win 2000.
The reception computer has just been switched to OS WinXP.
Two other computers on the system are Win 98SE.

Two of the printers on the system are located at the receptionist machine. One is an HP 7350, and the other is a 4050 laser.
All machines on the network recognize the 7350.
Only the server and the receptionist computer recognize the 4050.
The 4050 is shared.
I have installed the Win 98 drivers for the 4050 on the XP machine, but the other machines still don?t recognize (see) the 4050 on the network, so that I can follow up with the installation on them.
Ideas or direction?

HP has a few different network connection wizards. I've found that one installs well and is seen across one network and the HPJet Direct software works best on another network.

I'd suggest trying the different HP Jet suites, I found the newest HP Jet Direct installed locally will often see what others won't. Wierd I know but I don't need to know why it works as long as it works, right?
