RE: Error when printing across through a router

This is apparently a bug introduced by a Vista update a month or two ago and
affects all printers, it doesn't seem to be related to drivers. My network
printer (attached to a Vista desktop) worked fine from my Vista notebook
until recently. Now, if I try to select a network printer in the set up, it
shows the printer but gives an error if I try to select it. Many old posts
suggest selecting a local printer and manually entering a new port with the
printer path, that does not fix the problem in this case.

If I try to connect to a printer on my Vista notebook from my Vista Desktop,
I get the same error. An XP desktop, however, can connect to a printer on
either Vista machine with no problems.

I'm not sure what update introduced the problem.
