    Default Shared printer

    Does the driver for a printer that is shared have to be on both boxes ?
    I have a windows network set up but run Xandros.My partners laptop is
    happy to share docs etc but if she prints from her Ltop a lot of detail is lost.
    The printer is on my box and prints things 100% for me.

    Hi Colin

    AFAIK, the XP box will require its own driver for the printer shared on the Xandros box.
    The only time I can think of multiple drivers are required is when you use terminal services with another O/S and require auto-creation of the printer.

    Can Xandros store extra drivers for printers?, thats cool.

    XP stores drivers, but only required if the connecting O/S cant find its own drivers.
