Been at this a while, still no joy. I've searched this and all forums for related posts, yet they all suggest things that don't work. I've also noted others with this same problem who have posted in the various forums with no joy either.
-XP SP2, ZASS 6.5 (latest <7)-Yes, I've actually re-nistalled a few times thinking this would help, including a full, clean install.-An HP 6300 Inkjet printer with an Ethernet NIC on it. That is to say, I am not connecting to it via another computer.-The printer is on my local LAN (same LAN as the computer), which is in the "Trusted zone". IP: 10.123.123.123.-I have added not just the LAN as Trusted, but also the printer's IP address.-My DNS is in the Internet Zone, as many with DSL do.-Settings for spoolsv and svchost are the same:
-Full rights for Trusted and Internet zones
-Permit (both ways, to and from) Trusted, My Computer, DNS Servers (in Internet Zone), and that printer(which is already in Trusted, I know).
-Deny all, with alert & logging.-Firewall -> Main -> Internet Zone Security: High
-only "Allow Broadcast/Multicast" is checked.-Firewall -> Main ->
Trusted Zone Security: Medium
-nothing is checked (blocked).-OS Firewall off.
This works, BTW, fine for everything else. There are no other exotic setings, as all else works fine.
In the logs, any connectivity attempts with the printer are logged as:

Typical ZA verbosity and clarity!
User sees this in Alerts & Logs -> Log Viewer -> Programs as spoolsv.exe, and nowhere else.
I still can't print unless I take ZASS out of memory. So to work around this, I have to print a PDF to a flash drive, walk over to a computer running ZASS-but with a printer connected via USB), and print from there. Silly, eh?
I'd like to think that I've put forth the requisite amount of research and frustration prior to posting here, but I'd appreciate anyone proving me wrong.
