Let me assume you are having the same problem I had:
1. An old printer connected to an "older" machine (XP, Win2000) with so called NT4.0 (kernel mode) driver
2. Want to provide it to a Vista machine as a network printer
Please try on your VISTA machine:
Control Panel -> Printers -> Add a printer -> Add a local printer ->
Create a new port: Local Port ->
Enter a port name: \\Your_XP_machine\Shared_Printer <<REPLACE W/ YOUR INFO>>
Pick appropriate driver from list provided by Vista <<Lexmark 4800>>
Thanks Alex. Can your solution also work for a printserver? I have an HP JetDirect 300x printserver connected to an HP LaserJet 3150. I would like to print from a Vista 32 PC on my network without buying a new printer and printserver. How would I apply your workaround in this setup?
