    Having just reinstalled Windows-7 Prof 64-bit I cannot use the installed printer on that machine from a net-attached machine. It doesn't see it, even if I put the correct details into the 'Browse for a Printer' box. Can't find it/can't find any net printer. It all worked well in a previous install.

    File and printer sharing is on, networking passwords are off. Drivers updated yesterday. The printer works from the Win-7 machine.

    I haven't tried this in the other direction, putting a net printer on the XP end.

    Any ideas, anyone?

    Regards,
