This time, however, when attempting to add the network printer to lớn the Windows 2000 computer, we received the following message: "Windows cannot connect khổng lồ the printer. Access is denied." We tried to bởi vì the usual troubleshooting: checked the security settings of the shared printer, checked the sharing settings, made sure that the file and printer sharing was enabled on the Windows 10 laptop, all was in order, yet the Windows 2000 computer was still denied access lớn the shared printer.

After restarting both computers a few times & repeating the sharing/connecting steps, but the same error message appeared every time. So we tried something different, & it worked. We decided to nói qua our solution here, hoping it could be of help to someone else:

1. On the computer lớn which the printer is connected (in our case it was the Windows 10 laptop), mô tả the printer as usual, & when sharing it, phối up the giới thiệu name that is easy to type in. For example, in our case the long name of the printer was "Epson Stylus Photo R200", but we shared it with the name EpsonR200: (using a simple name lượt thích that should make it easier lớn enter it later on)


2. On the computer from which you want khổng lồ connect lớn this printer (in our case it was the Windows 2000 computer) use the built-in showroom Printer wizard & choose the "Add Local Printer" option. (If your computer runs Windows 10, you can find this wizard on the Devices - Printers và Scanners page of the Windows Settings window)


3. Press Next, và on the next page choose the "Create a new port" option and make sure the "Local port" option is selected:


4. When you press Next, Windows will prompt you to enter the port name. Enter the UNC name of the shared printer, in the format: //computername/sharedname . In our case, the computer name of the Windows 10 máy tính was laptop, and we had previously phối up the shared name of the printer as EpsonR200 (see Step 1 above), so we entered the port name as:


If you don"t know the network name of your computer, you can find it out as follows: right-click on the This PC thư mục (or Computer) in Explorer or some other tệp tin manager, and choose Properties from the shortcut menu. On that page, look for the "computer name" text. That"s the name you need to lớn enter instead of "laptop" in our example. Be sure khổng lồ use the name of the computer that has the printer attached lớn it, not the one from which you are trying to lớn connect khổng lồ the printer through the network!

Next, Windows will probably ask you lớn select the printer make & model, install its drivers, etc. Keep providing the information that the wizard requires, according lớn your specific printer. When done, Windows should showroom the new printer khổng lồ the computer, & you should be able khổng lồ use it lớn print files. The procedure described above worked for us, hopefully it will work for you, too.

Happy printing!
