Shared Printer is not able to install

By prasadiritty ·
I have HP 1200PSV all in one Printer which is connected to a Windows XP Pro System and it is shared, we have windows 2000 Domain and some windows 2000 Pro systems over the network. The shared printer is installed in some windows 2000 Pro systems but I am not able to add this printer in one Windows 2000 Pro system and in the server. In the add printer wizard when I search for the printer it is not at all displaying under the particular system, and if I browse the network also I am not able to access the printer it gives an access denied message. I am not able to add the printer by UNC path. Please help me to solve this issue.
