I am not sure if I this is the right place to ask this question but I will try.
I have Windows Vista desktop with wired internet and wired Zone Alarm router. A Canon printer is plugged in to the router as well. The printer works from the Vista desktop but I can t configure file sharing and printer sharing with my other computer which is a Windows XP wireless laptop. I run a network wizard on the laptop and at least I can see the laptop on the Vista computer. I still can t see Vista on the laptop XP however. The laptop can connect to the network and use the internet but I can t add printer. I tried to browse for the printer but all I see is the name of the network I have but no name of the printer. Zone Alarm shows the name of the printer as Printer1 . I tried to put this as the name but it does not work. I don t know what is the server address. Is it 192.168 .. or is it my.firewall .
I am lost. I know that 2 different Windows versions create problems but maybe there is a workaround.
I disabled firewall on the Vista computer but I didn t do it on laptop XP. I am not sure if this is important or not. Thanks for your help.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
