I've just built my W8 lappy after my old W7 one expired recently. All well and good until I tried to set up the old Lynksys parallel port printserver to serve an equally venerable HP1320 Laser printer. All worked fine in W7, but can I get it going? Can I f...errrrr, hell.
I can't config through the Lynksys software as I simply get a 'can't add port' message even though I can see the printserver in the Lynksys software and when I add a 'standard' TCP/IP port in W8, I can't print. I can ping the printserver and I've tried in W7 compatibility mode and as Admin.
I'm a bit stumped now, shades of Vista.... Any suggestions please?
