    I don't believe you can use Find Printer without joining the machine to the domain - which is what the error message is telling you.

    You'll have to setup the printer manually.

    How are your workstations connecting to it - is it installed locally on each workstation, or is it installed and shared on the server? The latter would be preferable.

    If workstations have it installed locally, then install the client software on the laptop.

    If workstations connect to a share on the server... then you don't have to be in a domain to do that... you will have to authenticate, but you can still access shared resources.

        Re: Network(HP) printer in VISTA

        other than our network. if any guest come to our office they use to connect through wireless that i use to connect the printer easly if the laptop os is XP.
        Use to enter \\pstation and select the printer and connect the printer and i use to give the path for driver where it located in my server.

        after given the path installation become over.

        But in visita if i click connect iam getting the error "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Make sure that you have typed the name correctly, and that the printer is connected to network."

        pls. help me.

          1) What is pstation?
          2) What OS it does run on?
          3) Does the printer you want to define has an IP address? If so, you may try to define the printer as a local printer on the laptop, by creating a new Standard TCP/IP Port with the printer's IP address. IMHO, it is better (more secure) this way, instead of connecting to a shared resource on the domain. You will need to store domain credentials on a laptop that is not part of the domain.

          I would erase (or at least edit it into a smarter form) the e-mail address from the signature, before all the spammers will flood your account.

            1) What is pstation?
            it's the network printer \\pstation network 2 printers connected. if enter \\pstation run command I can view 2 printers.
            2) What OS it does run on?
            I like to add the printer in Vista.
            3) Does the printer you want to define has an IP address?
            The printer dont have IP it's connected with "D-Link 10/100m Fast Ethernet Printer Server " in that we can connect 2 printer only that D-link ethernet printer server have IP

                Hmmmm.
                First, is this product the one you have? If not,
                Second, please tell us what exact D-Link product do you use and check on this list compatibility with Vista.
                We'll later go from there...

                    There are Vista drivers for the 2005L on the website. Not for the 1015 though, but the XP driver works fine for me.

                      Usually I would tell you to try a generic HP driver (Like HP LaserJet 4MP), but I don't know if it will work with D-Link.
                      I'll try to look into it, but I am not optimistic (I am not sure I will be able to get one of those toys).
