        Re: most amasing thing with printing

        just a note, since i'm digging for a solution (not this kind) for my MSDE SQL in SBS 3002 (diferent thread) problem, but i stumbled over this thread and thought to throw in that a lot of the so called ALL-IN-ONE Printers from HewlettPackard, like 5110, 6110 and such printer-fax-scanner machines are NOT LAN-supported anymore since SP2 for winXP is out.

        Thats even "official" from a live-chat tech-support.

        Reason why i stumbled over of my clients used to have a networked 5110xi all-in-one printer, which worked superbly BEFORE winXP SP2...after that it prints in very strange ways, like "mirrored" (as in, hold the printed paper against the light, look from the back through, THEN you can read it properly!) from a LAN connected PC. but from the computer where the printer was actually physically attached to it works fine - even though its the same TSR's. Whats even funkier; this effect is not always happening, only in about 70-80% of the printouts, regardless if its a screenshot, WORD document or any other program's print-out.

        I assume that HP's drivers were screwing/tweaking with the network-components of winXP/+SP1 and since SP2 is tightening the network-security, it fails to work properly.

        just thought i throw this little known - i think - fact in here.


        EDIT: w. "same printer TSR" i mean the most modern/recent TSR Hewlett Packard has for the printer, but its the same way/version installed on all PC's that are connected (either LAN or physically, directly) to it.
