Greetings Everyone,
I have 2 XP pro machines, referred to as XP#1 and XP#2 . Subnet #1 has XP#1
with a static IP in the 192.168.1/254 range .Site#1 is in a different part
of town. Subnet #2 has XP#2 with a static IP in the192.168.16/254
range.Site#2 is also in a different part of town. The end user allways logs
into XP#2 on Site#2 from XP#1 on Site#1. XP#1 has the local USB port
configured as the default printer a with Samsung ML370 , as well as a mapped
shared HP LaserJet 4P printer on another local XP workstation. Both printers
are recognized and available when the RDP session is initiated. Meaning all
printer redirection is avalable from both the "Samsung from (COMPUTERNAME)"
and "HP LJ4P from (COMPUTERNAME)".

We installed a Sharp 407E Model AR-PB2A unit onto site#1. The Network
Interface Card is set for a static IP of 192.168.1.200. I installed this
Sharp printer on a local TCP/IP port I created in the print folder of XP#1,
I also, had to configure the data as LPR instead of RAW, with a que name set
to "lpr"
I have downloaded the specific drivers for this model AR-PB2A . These, WHQL
XP drivers were installed into the Print Server Properties of both XP#1 and
XP#2 units.
I can test print from XP#1 to the Sharp 407E without any problems. When I
log into XP#2 on site#2 this printer does not get recognized and redirected.
I still only recognizes the HP LaserJet 4P and Samsung ML 370. What am I
missing?????????? Any suggestions would be greatfully appreciated. Thank
you.
