Hello. I have a 2 computer network using a crossover cable. I installed a printer on one of those computers, and made it a network printer. When the computer with the printer attached to it prints, it prints fine. But when the other computer (the one that doesn't have the printer physically attached to it) prints, the pages always come out blank. I reinstalled the printer drivers, but that didn't help. It's using LTP1 on the pc with the printer, and on the other it has the correct path of the other pc. I shared the printer and it shows up in network neighborhood (both pcs have win98). Any ideas?

What is the make and model of the printer? There could be a setting in the driver to send a form feed after printing, which would cause this.

Well it's a friend's printer..i know its an HP, but not sure of the model. also, it doesn't feed the paper..the printer acts like it's actually printing, but nothing gets on the paper..so that's really weird.
