    I own a Maxgate Ugate 3200P switch/router and am trying to install a printer attached to it. It has a parallel port that allows shared printing as if the printer is on your LPT1 port. I have it installed fine on my two other Windows2000 machines but a third machine fails during install.

    It comes with software called addport.exe that installs a "shared port" type. Once the new port is there, you install the printer driver and attach it to that port.

    When I run the addport.exe windows program on this particular machine it searches the lan and fines the printer. It asks me to confirm the printer name. Then it warns me to turn off the Epson Print Spooler since the ugate print handling wants you to use standard windows print spooling. Well, there's the rub...My epson printer spooler is NOT installed. I've even searched the registry looking for anything that might indicate any epson controls. Nothing is there.

    I even upgraded my firmware in the ugate...just in case their tech support wouldn't talk to me without the latest firmware installed. I can't reach their tech support by phone and have sent them an email.

    Has anyone else installed a similar "shared port" using a program like addport.exe? I've looked at all my .ini files too. I've even copied files from the know good machines...but to no avail.

    Help please.
