    hi

    I have a xp pc with a espon c900 printer shared.
    In xp the printer wil be seen as a epson c900 advanced.

    The printer also communicate whit the pc exp paper jam?

    In vista the xp drivers won't work.
    So on other forums a found the solution.
    Install the printer local and map a port to the shared printre on xp an use the vista driver

    Printing is ok.

    But when i whant to install my status monitor in vista he won't commnunicate with the shared printer on xp.

    An in xp it works fine. There i can see if the front cover of the printer is open and so on.

    The status monitor works fin when the printer is connected on the usb port of the vista machine but not when the printer is connected to the xp machine

    any help is welcome.
