can't print from win2k to printer connected to win98 machine

Discussion in 'HP' started by Norman Gootee, Dec 9, 2003.

  1. We have an HP 2300 printer installed on a Win98 machine and we are unable to
    print to it, through the network, from a Sony notebook with Win2000. When we
    installed the printer on the notebook as a network printer, we were unable
    to print a test page. We tried installing win2k as a dual boot on the win98
    machine and had no trouble printing from the notebook, so we know that it is
    possible, but this caused problems with other win98 machines on the network.
    We would prefer to have the printer on a win98 OS. We can't install win98 on
    the Sony because there aren't any drivers for the hardware. Is it possible
    to print from win2000 to a printer on a win98 OS?
