I have tried to print with a shared printer which is in a LAN attached to another computer connected to the same LAN. I have been successfull to print to this shared printer when using notepad or microsoft office Word. Nonetheless, it seems that autocad does not recognize this network printer because altough it does shows up in the autocad's printers list, it quickly dissapears once you select it as the printer autocad should use to print your next job. At the same time, I have tested autocad with another shared printer which is connected to the same LAN through another computer, and in this last case autocad lets me select this last printer to print successfully.
Does any of you have any idea about why this might be happening?
The printer which is not recognized remotely by autocad but works successfully remotely with notepad and office Word, is a Cannon attached with USB cable to a computer with win xp pro sp3.
The printer which works successfully remotelly with autocad is HP instead of Canon and is attached physically to a computer with WIN XP PRO SP3 as well.
The computer using remotely both printers is has windows vista installed.
Any help is really appreciated.
