    I have a odd situation that has mystified me regarding a printer.


    I am running two PCs side-by-side, both are using Win 7. The printer is a Kodak ESP 7 AiO. The printer is cabled to one PC whilst the other PC accesses the printer via the cabled PC. I continually receive an error message on the non-cabled PC stating that Bidirectional support is disabled, the message flashes on and off the screen every five seconds. It's very distracting. The issue here is that the bidirectional support IS enabled on both machines, both machines show a tick in the appropriate box to indicate that this is so. I am able to print from both machines without any problems. Can anyone please suggest how I am able to stop the error message flashing/appearing.


    Thank you and have a nice day.

    what happens if you connect the pc with the notification directly to the printer?
