'[OT]: Using a shared Printer with WVista'

Hi,
It was a sad day yesterday, trying out to connect a Vista laptop to a W98
Desktop
with a USB HP Laserjet1020.

I've managed to "see" the printer in the network neighborhood, but it
refused to install it self, giving a 0x00000866 error (?). It didn't work
even with the firewall disabled.

After a lot of hours wasted, I did this W 3.11 trick,
With the HP drivers(*) already installed on LPT3 - Windows loves to fake
ports -

Open a command console and type:

net use lpt3 \\host\hp

Problem solved.
I've left a .bat to recapture the printer if the connection to the host is
lost.

Happy faces all around. I returned home calling names on Billy, in a heavy
rained noon

Hasta la vista, Billy
Dennis.

similar issue here with a 2-3 years old inkjet HP printer (maybe 3820 or
alike). I found updated driver on site, and they worked...
