  1. Dear Experts,
    We have a dot matrix printer installed on a system(Win XP) and it is shared. Now when a remote win 98 computer connects it and gives print out thru dos based applications, it gets printed. But if a win XP printer gives a dos based print out over the network, it doesn't gets printed.
    Kindly advice....

    It would appear this is driver related. You might only have the 98 drivers on the network. XP computers printing to this network printer should have the XP printer drivers.

    Not a driver issue

    If it was a driver issue then the printer should not print any of the print outs other than dos based. The problem is that Printer is just not taking the print out which are DOS based and are given from Win XP system over the network.

    Any advice......
